Green Schools Committee – Walkability Audit

Green Schools Committee – Walkability Audit

On Monday 16th December the Green Schools Committee along with our local travel officer conducted a walkability audit of the local area. We looked at the condition of footpaths, roads, accessability for wheelchair users, the safety aspect if children choose to walk or cycle to school  and we also measured the speed of traffic using a speed gun on the road outside our school.

Aistear – The Vet

Aistear – The Vet

Last month in Aistear the junior and senior infants really enjoyed learning about animals and taking care of their pets. In pretend play they took on roles such as a vet, receptionist, veterinary nurse, pet owner and in some cases dogs and cats. They brought in their toy animals to school. They made kennels and crates in construction as well as animal masks. Using play doh they put bandages on dogs, made cages, dog treats and pets.
