Green Schools As we are focusing on Biodiversity as our theme for this year, Fourth Class, with help from our Green Schools committee, are soon going to be making a “bug hotel” to investigate the types of insect life there is around our school and to promote biodiversity on our school grounds. It should be a very interesting project!
Also look out for our recycled Christmas decoration display which will soon be on view in Roberts of Dalkey.
