Let It Bloom:Go Pesticide Free
At All Saints’ we endeavour to do our bit for Climate Action.
This year Stranooden Group Water Scheme connected with our school to participate in their Community Initiative to protect the local drinking water sources and to help the bees, butterflies and wildlife in our gardens.
The title of their Initiative is “Let It Bloom, Go Pesticide Free”.
The pupils learned about the dangers of Pesticides and about how they can be harmful to other living things in our gardens. Ireland is losing plants, insects , bugs ,bees and ecosystems.
To halt the decline we can create habitats in our gardens for as many native species and ecosystems as possible.
The children learned that we all have a role to play and not to use pesticides.
Each child and every teacher was given a Native tree to plant in their gardens and to pass on the message at home to stop using Pesticide.
Nature walk – Environmental awareness and care
Children went on a walk to the Peace Gardens. We explored and examined the changes that were taking place in nature in Spring. Children carefully examined and observed the buds on the trees, flowers growing, minibeasts on trees and plants, animals in the field. They then collected old twigs, leaves, flowers to bring back to the school. The children worked together to make a picture out of natural materials.
