A number of 6th Year students had the opportunity to attend a guided prayer week, from Monday. Many thanks to Sr Marie Brady and Siobhán Murphy for facilitating.
The students of our school decided to attend classes on the day of the Climate Action and they each participated in a thumbs up for Climate Action by placing their thumbprints on cards. The cards were then presented to the local politicians asking them to work on our behalf, to support Climate Action and save our vulnerable planet.
Mr. Darragh o’Brien, T.D. called to the school, met the girls and accepted the cards. He promised to take the issue to government and be a voice for our concerns. The whole school community who participated are very grateful for this opportunity to have our voice heard politically.
Thumbs up to Climate Action!
