These students are from class 4.3 and 4.4, they have an Eco class once a week, where they are asigned different tasks to do with the environment. Both groups will be submitting entries for the YEA, the Young Environmentalist Award.
The groups will also be responsible for the school garden and will be growing vegetables in the second term.
The above students meet every Tuesday at 1pm in Art Room 1. They discusss environmental issues and come up with ways to promote environmental awareness in our school. They also help to organise campaigns like our recylcing raffle which took place in December of 2008.
The Transition year students, as a group, have also undertaken to grow a vegetable garden in the school grounds as part of the Young Environmentalist competition. This involves coming to school at 8o’clock in the morning to plant, dig and weed the garden. We wish them the best of luck.
