Space week took off with a 3….2….1….BLAST OFF! 🚀🚀

We celebrated ‘Space Week’ from Monday 2nd of October to Friday 6th of October. 

Everyone was incredibly busy learning all about Space and making their own creations, ranging from aliens to rockets to spaceships to the galaxies. 🌍 ☄️🚀

There were many Space Week themed activities in all classes during ‘Space Week’ this year including; space engineering projects, art, poetry, experiments, space facts, and much more. 5th and 6th Class even got to visit Blackrock Observatory, where they took part in a range of science experiments and activities.

Beach Clean Up Day 🗑️

Here at Knockskeagh, we are currently working towards getting our 8th Green Flag – Global Citizenship Marine Environment. As part of the application process, our GreenSchools Committee participated in a beach clean up at Inchydoney Beach on Wednesday 31st May. 🗑️

Using our pickers, we picked up almost 3 bags of rubbish from the beach! We hope people visiting the beach during the summer will leave it tidy! 🚮 At Knockskeagh National School, we are advocates of “Leave no trace”. 🗑️

After the clean up, we explored the rockpool areas at the beach known as the intertidal zone. The committee discussed the impact that litter would have on the different sea creatures and how it is so important to take our rubbish home with us.🗑️

It was a very enjoyable day for all, made all the better by the beautiful sunshine. ☀️

    Please see our gallery below for a sample of what we got up to on our clean up!

    Green Schools Action Day 2023

    The Green-Schools Committee has been working very hard behind the scenes towards getting our 8th Green Flag, Global Citizenship: Marine Environment. 🐟They have been raising awareness on how looking after our local marine environment helps sea creatures all over the world and how we need to reduce our litter that is entering the rivers and oceans. 🗑️

    For their key issue, the committee is learning about sea pollution, which is now widely acknowledged as a massive challenge facing our marine environment.

    We are had our Green-Schools Action Day on Monday 22nd May, where pupils were invited to create “Under the Sea” art and the GreenSchools committee decorated the Hall with these. 🦑 It was gorgeous to see the variety of art that was created in the school and it brought so much colour to the Halla. Our local TD, Christopher O’Sillivan TD visited Knockskeagh on the day and he spoke about his experiences of the ocean. He is the spokesperson for the Environment, Biodiversity and climate change and he is an avid whale watcher. He kept the classes engaged in his chat and answered some of their questions. Thank you very much Christopher for your insightful chats with the classes!

    We encouraged all families to join us on the day for a ‘No Single Use Plastic’ at home or at work. We incorporated this in to our school also and the GreenSchools committee measured the amount of single use plastic in their individual classrooms on the day. 

    Thank you all for your support!
