The children in 5th and 6th class participated in the National Spring Clean as part of out day of action on the 20th April 2018. They searched for litter and waste all around the school grounds and the local area. They also swept the local footpaths and the school yards. They worked really hard and their results certainly show that.
Reuse old water bottles to water the plants.
The children in 6th class participated in the Eco Tribes project in conjunction with Monasterboice Tidy Towns and the Louth County Council. The project focused on creating a pollinating garden to encourage pollinating insects like bumble bees and butterflies. Firstly the children had to come up with a name for their Eco Tribe. The name they chose was 'Operation Pollination' and their tribe slogan was 'Let's operate and pollinate.' They then designed a tribal crest to best represent their tribe and their mission.
The class used a variety of recyclable materials to create their pollinating garden. Using recycled tyres as the base, they painted them to look like common pollinators, the bumble bee and the lady bird. They painted common pollinating insects and wild flowers on large flower pots using oil based outdoor paints. Mrs. Conneely collected recycled soil from the local recycling centre and bought the plants. The children collected pebbles and then painted them to look like common pollinating insects.
Take home your rubbish from your lunch in school and recycle any waste.
