To celebrate all the work that the children have put into working towards our sixth green flag, Ms Reilly organised a special assembly on Friday 9th March.
In the assembly we reminded everyone of the different concepts we had explored such as plastics in the ocean, fair trade and reducing/reusing/recycling.
Another topic we discussed was global citizenship. We are lucky enough to have children from many different backgrounds in our school and some of them stood up to tell us how to say hello in their native language. It was great fun trying to pronounce the words!
Ms Cunningham spoke to the children about her visit to a school in South Africa where she was working with the Niall Mellon Trust. She has been visiting all the classes showing them pictures of her trip and explaining the differences between schools here in Ireland and those in South Africa. The children are really enjoying learning all about it.
The highlight of the assembly for many was the announcement of the poster/slogan competition winners. The children had worked very hard at home to come up with great ideas to represent the theme of ‘Global citizenship, litter and waste’ and one winner was picked from all classes as well as two overall winners.
Well done to everyone for all of your hard work. The posters are currently being displayed around the school and are all fantastic!
