Sow and Grow Update

Published by under Green School,Infants

The childrens’ baby carrots are doing very well. They water them twice a week and leave them on a window so they get plenty of light. The children will bring home their Sow and Grow cups on Friday. They will continue to water them at home. Have a look at our photos!

Battery Collection

Well done to all the children and parents for collecting 12 boxes of batteries for recycling, in aid of the “Laura Lynn Foundation.” This is a very worthy cause as it helps terminally ill children. Remember, our battery collection is ongoing throughout the year, so keep filling your blue boxes. 

Thank You,

Ms Rigney and the Green Committee

Ms. Rigney organised a Halloween art project for the whole school. Junior Infants to 2nd class made masks. 3rd-6th class made Keep Out signs. All the children used recyclable materials. You can see from our photostory that everyone made a huge effort! Ms. Rigney bought a lovely treat for each child that made a mask or a sign.
