06 Feb Action Day 2020
On Wednesday the 5th of February we held an action day for our fourth Green Flag under the theme of travel. We had loads of fun in all the classes! Junior and Senior Infants visited Sylvia our Lollipop Lady to learn about her job in the community. The junior classes also had transport-themed Aistear. First class took part in an action sensory walk in the hall, designed by boys in 4th class with Ms. Keoghan. Second Class went on a transport Eye Spy of Cabra, to see the Luas, the buses, bikes, cars etc. They also played transport Bingo with Alison, our Travel Officer from Green Schools. Sixth class designed cars of the future and had a debate about on the motion ‘We should have a car-free zone outside the school’.
All of the senior boys got a visit from the Gardaí to hear all about road safety. The junior end of the school talked to the Gardaí about what they should do if they get lost, how to be safe on their bikes, and as an amazing treat they even got to sit in the patrol car, put the sirens on and play with the walkie talkie!
At the end of the day Niall, Caleb, Lucas and Sorin from 5th and 6th class represented our Green Commitee to talk Alison through all of the work we did as part of our renewal visit. A big thanks to these super boys for all of their hard work. We will find out after Easter how we got on.
