Challenge to Change

24th Apr 2023

On Thursday, 20th April, our Green Schools Committee and 6th class representatives travelled to Kilkenny for the "Challenge to Change" seminar held in the Lyrath Estate Convention Centre. Here, the children were given the opportunity to present their project "Change Your Habits, Not Our Climate". The project focused on what we can do in our own school environment to combat Climate Change. The girls highlighted the amazing work that has been going on around the school this year including reducing tissue waste, WOW, the planting of our mini orchard, increasing our pollinator plants, Picker Pals, etc.

The seminar also gave the girls an opportunity to meet other students who took part in similar projects. They were able to share ideas and gain insights into what other schools are doing around the country to combat Climate Change. 

We would like to thank the girls for their hard work and dedication to this project. They have made our school a cleaner, brighter, more climate-friendly place to be.
