It has been a busy year for the Green School’s Committee! Here is a video showing our highlights and achievements as we explore the theme of Biodiversity here at the CBS.
Green Schools Committee 2022/23
Step 1 when embarking on a new theme is to set up a Green Schools Committee. This consists of a representative from each class in the senior end of our school (3rd-6th class). The boys and girls are very interested and passionate about helping the environment. Some even made PowerPoint presentations to their classes to convince them they were right for the job! We hold meetings every second Wednesday, and our representatives feed information back to their respective classes. Our main responsibilities are to raise awareness in our school community and to increase the biodiversity on our school grounds. The future is definitely in safe hands!

Irish Water Poster Competition
The theme for this year’s Irish Water Poster Competition was “Local Water Actions for Global Change”.
The standard of entries from our school was so high. Just have a look for yourselves!

It has been amazing to see the sunflowers we planted blossom. They were transplanted from our polytunnel to the front of our school building. We needed to tie them to sticks so that they would grow straight. We’ve been making sure to water them regularly, especially in this recent warm weather!
