Special thanks to Mark Molloy, Environmental Awareness Officer of Galway County Council, who came to visit our Green Schools Committee last week to talk to them about the importance of water conservation and reducing the use of plastic bottles. Thanks to the help of Mark, and the generous sponsorship of Galway County Council we had a water bottle filler and fountain installed before Christmas. Already, the Green Schools Committee have noticed a noticeable drop in the number of plastic bottles going into our recycling bins each day. They would like to encourage all students to please use refillable bottles each day to help in reducing our plastic usage going forward. @GalwayCounty @GalwayCoCo
Last week the 2B CSPE class had a Climate Action Workshop with a representative from the SEAI. Following on from the SEAI’s and the Dept Of Educations Deep Energy Retrofit Pilot grant, where Dunmore CS received huge funding last summer to make our school more energy-efficient, our 2B class decided to enter the One Good Idea competition.
One of our boys’ teams “The Binjas” had great success and they qualified for the Regional Finals and in preparation for this, they must create a 1 min film and 3 min Presentation Pitch that will be played in the Omniplex cinema Limerick on 25th February. The class explored impacts of recycling, experiments with CO2 Gas and thoroughly enjoyed it all. Best of luck to our Binjas who are fighting for climate action and keeping a keen eye on all to see if you are using the right bins…..Watch out!

An orange weather warning has been issued for Galway and the West of Ireland because of storm Brendan. At present we intend to open today, but this may change depending on weather updates or if we get a Red Warning. We will update parents/guardians and staff by text if the decision to close is made.
If the school is open today, the final decision as to if students should travel rests entirely with parents/guardians.
