‘Sick of Plastic Day’ – Documentary: ‘A Plastic Whale’

This Friday, the 18th May, we are having a ‘Sick of Plastic Day’ as one small step in making a joint contribution to reducing the large quantities of plastic that are consumed every second of every day around the world. Our environment is becoming more littered every day and our food chain is becoming contaminated. We are asking all students to do a little so that together we can do a lot!!! So this Friday in order to reduce the amount of plastic we use, please only bring to school sustainable plastic and not bring single use plastic bottles etc to school.
In order to prepare for the day we had a viewing today of the documentary from sky news called: ‘A Plastic Whale’ which was about a dead whale which was found with its stomach full of plastic packaging. It is a very sad reflection on what is happening to our environment under our watch.

2nd Year All Ireland Finals

Hard luck to our 2nd year Boys Basketball team who were defeated today by Heywood Community School (43-28). Our boys led at the very beginning, but had a tough battle throughout – but they never gave up.  Well done to Ms Grehan and the team for all your hard work and commitment, it is a fantastic achievement to have gotten this far. We are very proud of you all.
