Green Schools

The pupils and staff at St.Enda’s are currently working on the seventh Green Schools theme – ‘Global Citizenship: Energy’. This theme gives schools the chance to revise Energy and look at issues surrounding energy use globally.

Our student committee consists of pupils from 3rd to 6th Class. They areJamie, Roisín, Nutsa, Lucy,Esmai, Leah, Aoibheann,Jakub and Siobhan.

We also have class monitors in each room to keep watch on our litter management, making sure the lights and whiteboard monitors are knocked off when not in use, watching out for taps running in the classroom and the bathrooms etc

The committee meet regularly to discuss ideas to help conserve energy in the school but also revisit other areas such as water, litter and biodiversity. And a cup of tea and a biscuit is always nice at the end of a productive meeting!

Picker Pals

Ms. Carkill’s class are really enjoying being ‘Picker Pal’s’. Picker Pals is a programme that operates around the very simple idea that the children take turns to bring a Picker Pack (containing all you need for a litter-picking adventure) home to their families and they go litter-picking in their local area.  The programme is free and all the materials were kindly supplied to the school.

Ms. Carkill has set up a rota so that everyone in the class gets to bring the Picker Pack home for two nights and get their family involved in the important job of keeping our local area clean and litter free.
