Eco Friendly Christmas Crafts

The Student Ambassador Team have been hard at work in the run up to the festive period. As sustainability remains a priority within the school, the team worked on the development of eco-friendly Christmas crafts. Using sustainable resources such as cloves, cinnamon sticks, oranges and local foliage, they created beautiful hand-made decorations for their classmates and school environment, brightening each classroom and adding to the festive energy in Greystones Community College. Well done to the students involved and to Ms Redford for her support and assistance with the project.
