Our Green Code

We asked the Gaeilge department who were working on Haiku's to ask students to design a haiku so it would be short and snappy and straight to the point. From the few options we got we narrowed it down to the following Haiku which we have now chosen as our green code

Gaeilge

Bratacha glasa, Ag séideadh san aer fionnúr, nach breá an radhairc é.

English

Green Flags, Blowing in the clean, fresh air, What a wonderful sight

Events 2022/2023

Green Week 10th - 14th October 2022

We had a visit from Steven Matthews TD from the Green Party on Wednesday 12th October to some of our second-year students. Steven spoke about the work he is doing in relation to safe cycle ways, around our area and he also filled us in on plans for an electric battery powered DART to Wicklow town. We discussed where, and how, our electricity is currently generated and how this will change over the coming years to more sustainable options such as wind and solar. Steven answered questions from second year students on topics around biodiversity and nature and the importance of it in our lives.

During our Action week we spent a few days preparing for our main event. We organized a swap shop. This involved everyone bringing in items of clothing like clean shirts, jumpers, t-shirts, trousers, dresses and skirts of their choice. For each piece of clothing you bought in you would receive a token. You would try to collect as many tokens as you can to swap for new clothing from our swap shop. Our swap shop was held in the Home Economics room. On the day, everyone came to spend their tokens to buy new clothing. It was the first, second and third years that participated. The aim of the swap shop was to reuse clothing in order to reduce waste. One person's trash is another person's treasure. Everyone really enjoyed looking through all of the nice items of clothing. It was a huge success and we are hoping to do something similar again in the future.
