Green Team 2019/20
We worked as a team to weed the edible garden – not an easy feat after a summer of fantastic weed growth! Shortly after schools closed down in March 2019, a ‘Green Schools Fairy’ planted some flowers, vegetables and herbs, which are now flourishing and will be ready to enjoy when we are back to school! Thanks also to junior infants who helped to finish off the remaining (huge!) carrots left in the edible garden – yum!
See if you can spot a tiny creature enjoying the garden and its nectar!
A cold but fresh Tuesday morning saw our Green Team accompanied by Peter, Stephanie and Humiara plant the first bunch of trees in Broadmeadow Linear Park as part of the ‘Easy Treesie’ programme. Visit https://www.plant-for-the-planet.org/en/home to find out how you can contribute! Never missing an opportunity, the Green Team took litter pickers and a bin-bag on their walk to and from the park, filling it to the brim with rubbish! Well done! (November 2019)
The Green Team were very lucky to have a visit from DCU based Ramune, who taught us all how to create a simple but effective leaf-mould composter. We invite you to throw any loose leaves you find into the composter at collection time – thank you! (December 2019)
Thanks to the wider school community who helped us to recycle over 200kg of home & small office electronic waste, and thank you to Recycle IT who made it all possible! (December 2019)
