Global Goals- Climate Action

Climate change is a real threat to our entire planet. 

Did you know that the world’s climate is changing? Many human activities like driving cars, running factories, and generating energy release gases into our atmosphere. Because these gases trap heat from the sun close to the earth, this is causing our planet to warm!

The effects are already visible and will be catastrophic unless we act now. Through education, dedication and and making lifestyle changes, we can make the changes to protect the planet.

Make it clear.

If we do this together,

We’ll keep it up forever.

Our target is to make things right.”

Grass Heads

 

This Green School project is so simple and it provides exciting results in about a week. G4 loved watching their grasshead sprout hair and keep growing. When it’s really long, they can trim it like a barber.

The children used plastic cups and planted grass seeds in compost  in order to grow their Grass Heads. They added some odd facial features to finish them off!

The boys in the Green School Committee have been very busy over the last couple of weeks.

They visited the Drogheda Recycling Centre on Tuesday where they were given a tour of the centre. They also got to go on the bus covered entirely in recycled cans!
