Welcome to the Green-Schools Blog
Here is our Green-Schools Committee. We have pupils from 3rd - 6th class on the committee. This year was a little different due to Covid and we didn't have many meetings but the committee was still kept busy checking the recycling bins weekly and litter picking also.
New Oak Tree Sapling
Mr. O’Dwyer, the former principal of St.Michael’s and Seed Savers kindly donated an oak tree sapling to our school.
This special oak tree sapling was grown from the seed of the very old Brian Boru oak tree in Raheen woods near Scariff.
On Thursday March 3rd, 2022 we planted the oak tree sapling on the grounds of Radharc na Mara. The Green-Schools committee, Des, Gerry and Senior Infants were there for the occasion.
Make sure you walk around the school grounds to visit it. It is planted beside the playground at the ASD unit. The Green-Schools committee planted some primroses and daffodils around the tree also for everyone to enjoy.
The Green-Schools Committee were busy planting marigolds, petunias, nastursiums and lots more pretty flowers in the raised beds on our school grounds last June.
