The highly anticipated Recycled Christmas Decoration competition was held last week. Once again there was huge interest and a great amount of entries. The standard was extremely high and all the wonderful decorations were on display for everyone to see. Congratulations to Grace, Lukas, Veste, Augustina, Dion, Scott, Jessica, Alexander and Michael on their winning entries. Their entries have been sent on to represent the school in the SDCC competition where entries are displayed in Tallaght library.
On Friday 21st of June we held a ceremony to mark the raising of our sixth green flag. This was a very proud occasion as our school also won the award for National Global Citizenship litter and Waste school of the year 2019. Newly elected Green Party Councillor Peter Kavanagh attended our ceremony and raised our flag. The whole school celebrated with a garden picnic and disco.
The fifth classes travelled .into the Irish Aid offices in Clonmel Street to participate in a workshop about Global Goals. They enjoyed the interactive stories, singing in Swahili and participating in a drumming session. They stopped off in the Iveagh Gardens for a picnic lunch.
Students from fifth class were given the opportunity to create and design some artwork and crafts for the SEED organic school garden at the Bord Bia Bloom festival held in the Phoenix Park. They were then invited to attend the festival where they received a guided tour of the completed school garden and the festival. This was an amazing opportunity and the children had a fantastic experience. They even managed to bump into President Michael D. Higgins.
Three officers from our Green School Committee and Ms. Conlon attended a ceremony in The Helix, DCU to collect our sixth Green Flag for Global Citizenship Litter and Waste, which we had spent the last two years working to receive. An extra dimension to the Global Citizenship theme had been added this year. The best schools were picked out for a special celebration and we were chosen as Regional Winners for the Dublin Region and a top ten finalist in the National Competition. At the ceremony we were very proud to receive the news that we had been awarded the prestigious title of NATIONAL GLOBAL CITIZENSHIP SCHOOL OF THE YEAR 2019. The children were awarded another trophy and a cash prize for the school. A huge congratulations to all the officers, students and teachers on the committee and to all the students, staff and parents in the school on this fantastic achievement. A whole school celebration will take place on flag raising day.
