Congrats sixth class on your graduation!

Well done to Ms. Neff’s sixth class boys and girls who graduated with flying colours from their Junior Achievement.

 

”Collette Rohan joined us every Tuesday morning to do fun activities with us. We thoroughly enjoyed solving crimes, learning about our bodies and making periscopes. Thank you Collette for taking the time out of your day to spend with us. We really appreciate it. And who knows, there may be a few future scientists among us.”

Spring

Our theme this month has been the season of Spring. We have been reading lots of spring stories and learning spring poems. Yesterday we went out to the garden to look for signs of spring. We saw that the daffodils we planted are blooming. We found buds and cherry blossoms growing on trees. We even found nests. We can’t wait to see if baby birds hatch in the nests.

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.
