Green Schools

Green Schools Section

Welcome to our Green Schools section. Pupils and staff in St. Aiden's have been involved in the International Green Schools Environmental Programme for 16 years! We have 9 green flag awards. Each flag awarded requires working on a new environmental theme, while sustaining work on previous themes.

The themes we are involved in are: Marine Environment; Waste Management and litter  ....reuse, reduce, recycle; Water; Energy; Travel; Biodiversity and Developing Global Awareness and Citizenship working towards our tenth   Green Flag

Pupils elect a new committee every two years.

 

It's a Wrap Project

Yvonne Lang from  IT Sligo visited the school on Tuesday 5th November. Yvonne was facilitating ‘Its a Wrap’ project which helps primary school children identify plastics present in everyday household packaging.The children collected waste plastic packaging and created a log of the plastic collected for one week. Yvonne helped the children identify the plastics by fingerprinting using the infrared spectrometer. Thank you Yvonne for your visit.

Our Butterflies

The children in the Junior and Middle Rooms explored the Life Cycle of the Butterfly - 4 stages: egg, larva, pupa (catterpillar) and adult (butterfly).. Have a look at the photographic record.

Trees in a Bottle

1st, 2nd and 3rd classes explored the different deciduous and evergreen trees and leaves in the school grounds. They learned all about leaf pattern, leaf parts and seeds. They displayed their leaves in bottles.
