Energy Day of Action

Well done to all who participated in our Day of Action!  Today we had a Green Day to raise awareness about energy conservation.

We held a poster competition to find a new slogan and poster on the theme.  We had a  ‘no power’  morning to see what it would be like if we had no electricity.

We had to work in the dark.  Ber and Mr Hurley could not work as the offices were too dark and the computers were switched off.  Classes had no white boards!!  We realise now how much we depend on electricity in Greenmount.

Recycling

We are very busy with our recycling work.

We continue to recycle our old mobile phones.  We hope to have enough phones to get a second ipad for our school shortly.  Please continue to recycle your phones at our recycling station which is by our notice board.

We also recycle batteries and stamps.

On the last friday of every month we hold a uniform recycling day.  We sell second hand uniforms of very good quality at low cost.

Our Skype call to Turkey.

We had a very exciting day today! We made a skype call to Turkey! The boys and girls in Turkey are learning about play all over the world. They wanted to ask us some questions. We told them all about the games we love to play in Ireland and they told us about some of their favourite games. It was very exciting. Did you know that the boys in girls in Turkey love the Gangham Style dance. We all danced together and could see each other on the camera. Here are some of the photographs.
