Being happy for little things every day so you don’t have to wait for big things 🙂
Date: Friday, 26th May
Time: 8.30 a.m
Meeting Point: Woodbury Road
Parents/ guardians are encouraged to drop off their children at this point and the pupils will walk to school from there. (Parking is not recommended in this area). There will be stickers and balloons to add some fun along the way.
Parent volunteers will be required again to ensure safety and guide the way to the school. If you are interested in volunteering for this (time will be from 8.15 – 8.50) please contact Helen or Lynn. Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com or call into our classrooms.
There will be lots of fun and healthy benefits from participating in this theme so we would really encourage you as a parent/ guardian to get involved and promote this with your children too. We also have our new ‘Green Code’ to chant as we walk along. Here it is for you to start practising:
Be Green , be clean,
Make our environment a dream,
Scoot, cycle or take the bus,
All together now – Bualadh Bos!
Looking forward to some fresh morning air, a healthy walk and lots of singing.
Our Action day will also take place on Friday, 26th May. This will involve all classes making and/ or designing a poster of a green way they have travelled to school. This will be done with their class teacher after our walk to school. These posters will be displayed along our corridors, linking all our classrooms together.
Third class have been working very hard over the last two weeks to write, create, record and edit animated movies as gaeilge for Seachtain na Gaeilge. Have a look at some of our creations! 🙂

The Green Schools Committee would like to thank and congratulate everyone for the fantastic effort made for the Big Travel Challenge 2017. As many of the pupils live far away from school and must travel by bus or by car, our focus was on to walk some of the way to school. This was done by walking to get your bus, park ‘n stride or drop off ‘n stride. Every class recorded their results on a daily basis and then the committee compiled the total numbers for each week. These results are displayed on our Green Schools notice board. Just on this alone, over the two weeks, there was an increase of 185 pupils travelling by park ‘n stride or drop off ‘n stride. This is a massive increase. Check out our notice board for all other results.
Congratulations to Lynn and Fergus’ class who won the overall prizes for a whole class effort. They have won a walking trip to Gorey Park (at the discretion of their teacher). Prizes were also awarded to individual pupils in each class for outstanding effort.
Finally, well done to all the pupils who got involved and especially to parents/guardians who facilitated their children participating in this challenge.
Keep up the great work 🙂 🙂 🙂
Well done to Fergus’ class who won the award on the second week of the Big Travel Challenge. They also won a walking trip to Gorey park.
Well done to all the children, families and parents/ guardians who participated in the challenge. There was almost double the amount of children participating in our Drop off ‘n stride activity for the second week of the challenge. Results will be posted on our Green Schools notice board. Continue to keep up this fantastic effort to help reduce fuel emissions and to get some exercise and healthy fresh air for our bodies early in the morning. 🙂 🙂
