This year the Green School committee will be working with Mr. Ryan on the new theme: Global Citizenship - Litter and Waste. During the year, the committee will be leading teaching and learning across the school with the younger classes focusing on the local environment and the older classes learning about how our choices affect the wider world and learning about some of the interesting projects around the globe to tackle the issues associated with litter and waste.
In addition, each classroom will be maintaining an area of the school ground, ensuring it is encouraging biodiversity. Junior Infants are decorating the new bug hotel in the garden area. 5th class are renovating and restocking the original hotel behind the school. They will also be working on weeding and planting the area at the front of the school. Senior Infants have begun adding new planting in the pots at the front of the school. 1st class are working on the Picker Pals project so we look forward to hearing what they get up to. They will also be maintaining the wild flower area too. 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th classes have been harvesting their beds and will be getting those ready for the winter.
The committee is delighted to be working with BEAG, Bandon Environmental Action Group, Bandon Tidy Towns, Muintir na Tíre to ensure our school in committed to the local community.
