We celebrated Green-Schools Marine Week in our school from April 15th-April 19th

We had so much fun engaging in marine art lessons, webinars and project work on our theme. 

Throughout the week, our Green-Schools Committee made announcements to the whole school, giving important information about sea creatures and ways we can help protect them from marine litter. 

On Thursday April 18th, the 5th and 6th Class pupils had a visit from Jim Callery, Environmental Awareness Officer, from Wicklow County Council. Jim gave a great overview of the local marine environment and tips to help us preserve marine life in our local area. 

On Friday April 19th, we held our Green-Schools Action Day. St. Joseph’s became a sea of blue filled with the most wonderful costumes as we saw mermaids, sharks, pirates and so many amazing marine creatures grace our corridors. We really enjoyed our parade around the school showing off our wonderful costumes! 

All of the classes visited the hall during our Action Day to visit our marine display. We decorated the hall with artwork from many classes and we displayed all of the entries to the art competition to show off everyone’s wonderful work. Big congratulations to our prizewinners!

Thanks to the Green-Schools Committee who organised the week. 

Well done everyone for your fantastic participation!
