Green Schools Banner competition

As part of our work towards our Green Schools Travel flag, all students were asked to design a banner that encourages people to help improve the quality of the air for everyone in our school communities.
The winners in St. Joseph’s were:
Insiya Imran – Junior
Eve Kenny – Middle
Chloe Melia – Senior

Eve’s banner was also a national winner!
A representative from Green Schools came to St. Joseph’s to present her with her enlarged, printed banner and a voucher to buy herself plenty of art supplies. Well done Eve!

SEAI Workshop

Ciara from SEAI came to the school in October. She visited two classes and did workshops with them. She also did a workshop with the staff after school. Ciara taught us about energy; how energy is made and how to conserve it. She brought her puppet, Guzzler, into 2nd Class. We learned a great deal from her and enjoyed the workshop.

Here is a video of one of the activities:
