Ms Devlin's class have been busy making fabulous Christmas decorations from recycled materials! We think they look way better than anything you could buy in a shop and we love how green this idea is! Well done girls- Happy Christmas to you!
Maybe it has given you some inspiration to gather up some used packaging or wrapping to create your own designs! Maybe you could even give old decorations a new lease of life?
Here are the graphs showing the average amount of waste in one day in our school. How good at recycling is your class?
Our Action Plan!
At our workshop on Friday we brainstormed all the ways we could REDUCE, REUSE and RECYCLE our waste. Below you will find our main actions. We hope you will help us with them to make a huge difference in our school and community. We plan on working on these in the coming months.
If we work together we can make a difference!

We began our first workshop on 4th December with Gráinne Ryan from Waste Action Ireland and Clare Egan from Dublin City Council. We collected all of our school waste from 1 day and transported it to the hall so we could inspect it and weigh it.
Why did we do this? It sounds really strange!
Well, we were checking a few main things:
What do you think?
Does this seem like a lot of waste? Do you think we could do better in our school? How?
*Hint: Maybe these could be some magic words for St. Brigid's!
REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE and RETHINK!!
Why not put your thoughts or suggestions in our Green Schools suggestion box?
Remember to write them on re-used paper!! ;-)
Better still, save paper and leave us a comment on this page!
We will be back next week with the results! How did your class do?
How did the teachers do.......?????!!!
Finally for now, here are some images of the Green Schools Committee hard at work last Thursday!
