Green Schools Projects

Over the past 2 years Scoil Lorcáin has been working towards getting our 4th Green Flag, which is for travel. Our committee is made up of boys from 5th and 6th class. Mrs Moore is our Green Schools co-ordinator and the other teachers on the committee are Mr Keegan, Mrs McGovern and Ms. Hayden. We normally meet once a month after school for our meetings but over the last two months we’ve been meeting every fortnight as we are on the final push to get our 4th Green Flag! This term each class has been busy doing projects for our Green Schools campaign. Projects range from the ‘History of travel and transport’, constructing modes of transport using recycled items and ‘Keeping Active’ to using the theme as a topic for our persuasive writing genre such as ‘Should people wear helmets while cycling?’ and ‘Why children should walk to school’. The finished projects are really informative and look great…… check out our photos and see for yourself!
