Our pupils have been working on Energy theme for the last two years.
A Green School committee was formed with pupils from 2nd – 6th class. Next the pupils monitored our energy use in school, checking are lights left on, computers on, doors open during break times and taking the temperature of the classrooms over a two week period.
Following lessons on awareness of energy use in the school, pupils noticed a significant reduction in energy use in their final monitoring period.
Sharon Scully – Environmental officer- visited our school on 25th February and asked the pupils how they worked on the Energy project. Following her report and recommendations to an Taisce our school was awarded the Green Flag on energy in Hotel Kilkenny on 10th May 2016.
