Scoil Naomh Eltin Green Schools Committee where honoured to attend the KInsale Tidy Towns Awards Night on Monday the 20th of November in Actons Hotel to receive our Highly Commended prize for the presentation of our school. Thank you Azra, Billy, Rowan, Ava May, Skye, Emma, Ali and Lee for all your hard work this year. The classroom checks, litter surveys, school competition and tree planting were all appreciated. Also, thanks to Kinsale Tidy Towns for a lovely evening and letting us stay up past our bedtime!
Congratulations to all of the winners of the Green Schools' Litter Awareness Poster Competition! Well done to all of the children who entered the competition! The standard was extremely high and the Green Schools' Committee had very tough decisions to make!
Well done Green Schools' Committee 2017! You are great representatives for Scoil Naomh Eltin. You have made us proud and have done great work this year!
The Green Schools Committee have been very busy.
Each week, we make sure that every class has an “Energy Squad” - each week two different children from each class will represent their classes 'Energy Squad' and will carry out the following duties;
Energy Squad duties:
*To make sure that lights are turned off when we are leaving the room.
* To check that the whiteboard projector is turned off when we are not using it.
* To ensure that all taps are fully turned off after we use them.
* To make sure that our classroom is a litter and clutter free room.
* To monitor the correct use of bins.
* To make sure that all waste from lunch boxes is brought home.
The Green Schools Committee members have been carrying out random spot checks of each class based on the duties of the Energy Squad.
The Green Schools Committee will make sure that Litter Patrol will be carried out with the help of Energy Squad.
The Green Schools Committee will have a school Walkabout each week and will record possible school improvement suggestions.
The Green Schools Committee are extremely busy at the moment!
Kinsale Tidy Towns, along with our Green Schools Committee and SuperValu planted a willow tree on the hill just outside Sherpa Kids. We are very excited to look after our new willow tree and watch it grow!
A huge thank you to Kinsale Tidy Towns and SuperValu for helping us plant the willow tree and for making it such a special experience. It was such a lovely day!
