Dear Parents and Guardians/A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

School Closes at 12pm tomorrow, Friday.

Student Council Update 2nd February 2023 

The focus of our meeting was sustainability. Cara (6th class) chaired the meeting. We discussed what our first focus for developing sustainable practices would be and decided to focus on:


  • Recycling bin for clean and dry paper and plastic
  • General rubbish bin should be used for anything else except food!
  • Everyone needs to bring their food waste home in their lunch box.
  • If the bins are always getting mixed up it would be a good idea to have a bin monitor who reminds children before each lunch break.

Green travel 

  • Encouraging everyone who can to walk/scoot/cycle or get the bus to school.
  • If you can’t do that because you come too far, or your parent/guardian needs the car then you could try to park and stride (park at the Finglas end of Griffith Ave and walk down) or car pool – where you bring a neighbour in your car or go in their car.
  • We would like ideas about how to make everyone aware of green travel and to encourage it at school.

Water Bottles 

  • Encouraging everyone to try to use a reusable water bottle as it is better for the environment.

The student council then visited all the classes and passed on these messages.  

Our next meeting is planned for next week.  Sorcha

And also, this Week
