Green Schools @ St. Patrick’s Classical School
In order to promote the whole idea of energy awareness among students and staff we are going to have an energy awareness week in the school in the first week in March. This will involve a whole range of activities designed to promote energy awareness. We are going to run a competition entitled “promoting energy awareness”, and students will be invited to paint a picture/poster ,write a poem, take a photograph ,design a St Pat’s green team T shirt, design a St Pat’s Green Team baseball cap or anything else a student can think of to promote energy awareness in the school.
As part of the green schools program we have to come up with a Greencode energy. This is a short phrase or mnemonic that captures the whole energy awareness program in the school. The student(s) that come up with the best green code will receive a prize. Our Greencode for litter was R.E.C.Y.C.L.E. which stands for recycle every day, cans, yop containers, lids etc.
We have lots of really cool prizes to give out to the winners in all competition and we hope to have a prize for each year and an overall prize. The parent’s council have very generously sponsored €250 for prizes. We have also received sponsorship from local business – e.g.”The Zone” have given us two €20 vouchers for energy awareness week.
