Green Flag

We in Wandesforde NS are a “Green School”. We were recently awarded our 2nd flag, which focuses on “Energy”. The 1st Green Flag was awarded for “recycling”. Our Green School’s Committee meet once a month to discuss green issues with Ms. Power, the green school’s co-ordinator. Recently we held a green school’s poster competition . There were 9 winners and each child received a €10 voucher for Argos. The title of the competiton was “Energy”.

Each year, as part of Green Schools we take part in the National Spring Clean. An Taisce send us out gloves and bin bags and we give our grounds a good spring clean! This year National Spring Clean takes place from April 1st – 30th, we went out on April 12th to clean the school grounds.

 

5th Class swept the drive and yard

We weeded and tidied all the flower beds

Junior and Senior Infants picked all the twigs up off the grass

6th Class used gloves to pick up any litter in the grounds

A big thank you to all the boys and girls for the great work they did! The school grounds look beautiful!

In 1st, 2nd and 3rd class, we planted cress seeds…

We placed the cress near sunlight and watered the seeds each day.  One pot was not watered and remained covered to show that plants needs sunlight and water to grow!

We also checked our vegetables in the garden of our  school in Castlecomer.  Here is a very small parsnip!
