An tÉicea-Choiste


Bhí an tÉicea-Choiste ag obair go díograiseach i rith Tearma 1 agus ba mhaith leo cur in iúl daoibh cad é bheas idir lámha acu i mbliana.

The Eco Schools Committee completed our Environmental Review for the year 2018/19 during the first term. As a result of our findings, we decided to focus on the following areas –

Global Perspective


Outdoor Learning.

As part of our action plan for the year we have decided that we would like to complete the following actions throughout the year.

  1. We would like to raise enough money to take part in the Toilet Twinning project. It costs £60 per toilet. We hope to raise enough money to buy two toilets in poor communities throughout the world. For more information visit
  2. We would like to hold a clothes collection to take part in ‘Cash for Clobber’ to help people in poor communities as well as to raise funds for our Eco Schools Committee.
  3. We would like to encourage our school community to purchase more Fair Trade goods where possible and to raise awareness of the importance of Fair Trade. 
  4. We will aim to increase the number of pupils who are actively travelling to and from our school. We hope to hold at least 3 active travel to school weeks this year. Our first 'Walk to School Week' will be held during the week beginning 11th February, 2019. We hope to see a great turn out!
  5. We hope to encourage more outdoor learning within our school. We would like to encourage each class to have at least one lesson outdoors each half term. 
  6. We would like to improve the appearance of our outdoor areas in our school.

Our Environmental Review and Action Plan for 2018/19 are available to view on the Eco Schools display board in the main school.
