We celebrated Catholic School’s Week and the beginning of Spring with a prayer service on St. Brigid’s Day and a Lenten prayer service during which, Áine Egan (Pastoral Worker) distributed blessed ashes with the assistance of Mrs. Prendergast.
All classes were represented during the prayer services as children were invited to bring gifts/symbols to the altar and take part in the prayers and readings.
We are currently working towards getting our third Green Flag for Water.
To conserve water in our school, we:
- Use rain water, which is collected by our water butt, to wash paintbrushes, do science experiments, water our plants and more!
- Check to ensure that taps are always turned off properly – a dripping tap can waste a lot of water!
- Placed 4 x 250ml bottles of water into each toilet cistern – every time a toilet is flushed, 1 litre of water is saved
The 4th and 5th class members of the Water Committee recently attended the Green-Schools Water Forum which took place in the Osprey Hotel in Naas. They shared their ideas with other Water Committees around the county and learned many new water saving tips to bring back to our school. A great day out was had by all!
