4th Class Assembly Performance

4th Class Assembly Performance

4th Class performed their Greatest Showman medley for assembly this week. It is one of the sets of songs they are preparing for Peace Proms 2019 which will be held in February in the RDS. The children have been practicing very hard every week both their singing and their dance moves.

Have a look at some of the photographs we took of the performance. We have some future stars among us! Darren

6th Class Visit Cool Planet

6th Class Visit Cool Planet

6th Class visited Cool Planet as part of Science Week. It is based in Powerscourt and it is an interactive center where you can investigate the story of Ireland’s changing climate. Children discovered what is making our climate change, the science behind it & how you can help create a healthy future for you and the planet. We participated in lots of interactive games, activities and in a science workshop. Each child had a wristband that helped them view their carbon footprint as they explored the different challenges online. The goal was to think about how you can reduce your carbon footprint. Children could check their results online.  Ronan

Food Waste Workshop in 6th Class

Food Waste Workshop in 6th Class

Food Waste Workshop

On Wednesday, 6th class did a workshop based on food waste.  Nuala Madigan visited us from Trifocal Ireland. Here is what we learnt.

  • 1,000,000 tonnes of food gets wasted each year just in Ireland. This is bad because when it rots it releases a greenhouse gas.
  • Because of drought this year in the summer, farming has been affected and potato crops have failed this year.
  • As well as wasting food we are also wasting money.

We waste €3,000 -€150,000 per year.

Did you know…?

  • 50% of all salads are wasted.
  • 20% of all breads are wasted.
  • 10% of all meats are wasted.
  • 10% of all dairies are wasted.
  • Some tea bags have plastic fibres, so check before you put in compost, or it could burn it.Our Food Waste Project

    Our next question is Can we grow lettuce, onions and radishes in winter inside?

    Materials:

    • 2x mineral/coke bottles.
    • 1x push pin.
    • Soil
    • 1x box (preferably hard plastic).
    • Water
    • Seeds
