Earth Day

On the 22nd of April we celebrated Earth Day

This month we saw the 51st anniversary of Earth Day! Earth Day is an annual event on April 22nd to honour the Earth and to demonstrate support for environmental protection. We need our earth to feed us, give us shelter and provide a habitat for all living things, but most importantly we need it to be healthy and feel well.

In Scoil Cholmcille Senior school we held a competition for each class to submit a pledge on how they can protect the earth!

The winning class was 5th class Ms. O’ Gara’s.

The interest and ideas were superb and it was wonderful to see the children becoming more aware of how we can protect and celebrate our planet.
