It's March now and our Green School's committee has been looking at our new theme of Biodiversity in our school. Before Christmas the committee asked all the staff and children in the senior classes four questions about what they know about Biodiversity. The results are below in the pie charts. While most of the children were not fully sure exactly what biodiversity included, they were very knowledgeable about how we might help the animals, sea creatures, insects and plant life of the planet. Our next step is to choose a Biodiversity Slogan for our school. We aim to have this complete by the Easter Holidays.
Third class did a survey of our our school grounds and mapped out the findings in the pictures on the right. They put a key to their maps explaining what animals, insects and plants and trees that they found in our school grounds.
At Scoil Naomh Áine we are about to start a new two year cycle to get our Biodiversity Flag from An Taisce Green Schools. Just before the Halloween midterm we elected our committee. They are pictured here. Ms Ciara Harrington and Mrs Colette Cleary look forward to working with the committe over the next two years. Our first task is to see what do the staff and children in our school know about biodiversity - Do they know what it is about? Do they know how we can help? Do they know what we at school can do in our school grounds to help create a natural environment for biodiversity? We look forward to keeping you all informed on each stage.
