Global Goals

Global Goals

Global-150x150

Over the past couple of weeks 6th class have been learning about the Global Goals.

The Global Goals have been drawn up to focus on three main areas they are to:

  • End extreme poverty
  • Fix climate change
  • Fight inequality and injustice

The Global Goals are set every fifteen years, in an attempt to make the world a better place for everyone everywhere.

Each child in our class had to make a poster representing one of the goals.

These posters were made for our presentation of the global goals.

Then Calum wrote a song to sing with the class in our presentation.

We have now made a music video and are planning to send the song into the global goals.

We hope they like it.

6th Class trip to Glasnevin Cemetery

6th Class trip to Glasnevin Cemetery

Recently our class went on a trip to Glasnevin Cemetery and the Botanic Gardens. We had a superb day out. While in Glasnevin we had the chance to visit the graves of many well known historical figures such as Michael Collins, Daniel O’ Connell and Éamon de Valera. Having studied Catholic Emancipation and the 1916 Rising in school this trip was of great interest to us.

We were really lucky with the weather on the day as it was beautiful. Following our tour we had a picnic before we headed to the Botanic Gardens. We loved wandering around the greenhouses in the Botanic Gardens. While we were there we sketched some fantastic pictures of the flowers and plants.

Overall we had a really interesting and fun filled day.
