Scoot to School day

On April 27th we had a scoot/cycle/walk to school day. Our Greenschools Committee is working on our fourth Green Flag, which is “Travel”. The objective of this flag is to raise awareness among children, adults and the wider community about the benefits of walking, cycling, scooting and exercise in general. There are also huge environmental benefits! With the weather on our side and sun shining brightly, we had a great turn out this morning. Below are a sample of photos which show the fun that was had by all.

Green Code – Energy Save

We are currently working towards our second Green Flag which focuses on Energy.

Scoil Mhuire Green Code
Energy Save

We use energy every single day,
We can save energy in lots of different ways,
When it is daytime nad it’s already bright,
Don’t wast electricity by truning on the light!

We use energy every single day,
We can save energy in lots of different ways,
When you wash your hands and the job is done,
Please turn off the tap, don’t just let it run!

We use energy every single day,
We can save energy in lots of different ways,
If you are feeling cold, you may not need the heat,
Just put a wolly jumper on and socks upon your feet!
