Last week, as part of National Tree week, the members of the Green School Committee planted an alder tree. This will increase levels of biodiversity in our school’s locality.
What is Biodiversity? Biodiversity describes the variety of life on Earth and the ways in which living things interact with each other and the world around them. Biodiversity is another word for nature or the natural world and includes people, animals, plants and microbes as well as places in which they live (habitats). It is simply the nature all around us.
A big welcome to our new committee for 2014-2015. This will be the committee who will finalise our application for the Green Schools Water Flag. Many thanks to all members of previous committees who have worked so hard over the last two years in creating awareness of the need to conserve and appreciate water.
The new Green Schools Committee met today for the first time. We had a great meeting which has set us up for the year ahead. Committee members for 2014-2015 are Julia, Art, Edvin, Hazel, Suzanne, Manchun, Elio, Aoife, Fionn, Vicky, Amy, Aoife, David, Ajay, Kieran, Cecilly-Anabell, Maria, Alan, Emer, Claire, Rebecca and Cathy.
