Green School in St Josephs NS Sept 21

We are continuing to work on the theme of Global Citizenship and Energy.  We are looking at Global Citizenship in relation to energy. We will be reviewing our energy use in school and investigating ways to reduce this further. We will also look at how we can save energy on a global scale. The most obvious global link to energy is climate change. This is the most serious problem of our time and is closely related to our energy use. Awareness of all previous themes will also be maintained throughout this theme.We will have a brand-new Green Schools Committee this year!We are so excited to have you all on board and look forward to creating some great activities and ideas for our school, based on the theme of global citizenship and energy!


Junior infants are reading Guzzler’s big book on energy. They are learning of all the ways to save energy. Some foods are better than others at giving us energy. Ask the junior infants for more information!
