The Green Schools’ Committee attended a Climate Change march at St Peter’s Church in West Street on September 20th.  They were joining with children around the world in one of the largest global climate protests in history.

The protest is their way of demanding politicians and businesses to take drastic action to stop global warming. Scientists warn it will lead to an environmental catastrophe.

Students in St Joseph’s and all around the world want to stop the damage that is being done to their future.

5th Class Trip to Oldbridge

R6 and R7 visited Oldbridge House last Thursday.

They got a bus to Tullyallen School and from there walked through the new walkway, Belnumber Wood Way, to King William’s Glen, part of the site of the Battle of the Boyne 1690.

After spending some time at Oldbridge House, they walked along the Boardwalk to the ramparts and Dominic’s Park. The sun was splitting the stones all day.

There were some very tired legs after the long day’s walking but all boys and teachers had a fun-packed and educational trip.

Green School Inspection

BC758C47-8BC0-4852-BF7D-AE94C3E3BD25

The Green Schools’ Committee had their inspection for the 6th Green Flag on Wednesday 20th March.

Barry Eaton from Louth County Council carried out the inspection and he was very impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of the boys.

He loved all the wonderful displays and projects on show throughout the school and commented on the cleanliness of our school yard.

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.

Our New Green Code

Our new Green Code was decided on following a slogan competition held throughout the school.

“Don’t make the Earth fear,

Make it clear.

If we do this together,

We’ll keep it up forever.

Our target is to make things right.”

 

The winners were Ali R8, James, Joe, Luke R6
