There is No Planet B
The girls in Fifth Class in St. Joseph’s GNS Mountmellick have been working hard on our Challenge to Change project 'The Is No Planet B' on Climate Action.
We completed a survey with the children from Third to Sixth class to assess their understanding of climate change/action and then created a video in the style of a news report to educate the children on climate change/action and what they can do to make a difference. We showed this video to the other classes and they all enjoyed learning about what they can do to make a difference in school and at home. We are surveying the classes again and have noticed an improvement in their awareness of climate change/action.
We have also planted plants and flowers in our school garden and the girls are busy watering the plants each day. We are also using our school compost bin for any fruit peels, etc. and this compost can then be used in our school garden. The girls also created posters which have been displayed around the school to promote an awareness of climate change/action.
