Green Flag


Green Flag Awards

Our school was awarded the Green flag on Thursday the 16th May at a ceremony in the Moran Convention Centre in Cork. Congratulations to Ms Browne and the Green Schools Committee for all their work to get the Green flag.

On the 16th of March Mrs. Browne, Bríd, myself and Jane went to the Silver Springs Hotel to accept our schools first green flag.

We left at 11.30am and when we arrived we received our complimentary bags. in the bag was a postcard, a tattoo and a bookmark promoting the Green Schools website.

We went upstairs to the function room. This is where the presentation was held. There was a noticeboard with projects, posters and newspaper articles. There was a green flag hanging up with a gigantic version of the bookmark. 

By 2 pm it was time for food! We were starving. We were all seated and our menu was delicious. The choice was:

Chicken wrapped in bacon with a side of vegetables


Lasagne with side salad and chips


Baileys cheesecake with ice- cream and cream

We all chose the chicken, it was divine. The cheesecake was just heaven!

The ceremony began after the food. There was a man in a globe costume. It was very well presented. We took photographs with him. Examples of how much litter and waste was saved by each category. Litter and waste was the weight of 69 blue whales!Energy was to the moon and back 17 times!

It was a great experience. I was delighted to be chosen to represent the school.

Spring Time

Spring flowers

I went for a walk at my granny’s and I saw lots of signs of spring. I saw cows in a field, frog spawn and I saw some bird’s nests in trees. 🙂

I went for a walk and I saw daffodils, I heard the birds chirping, and lots of other signs of spring too. 🙂

Spring Frogs

We made spring frogs on a log.

We cut out an oval and bent the top of it over to make a mouth. We drew four legs and cut them out. We glued two eyes, a sticky tongue and the legs on to the oval.We made a log and glued the frog onto the log.

It was lots of fun and the cutting was a little hard! 🙂

First Class Biscuits

We made biscuits.

We put flour, butter and sugar  in a bowl to make a dough. We rolled the dough and cut out lots of different shapes like cows, chicks, bats, pigs, a dog and baked for six to ten minutes. We had to wait!Once baked we ate them 🙂

It was great fun making them! 🙂
