On Tuesday last, 24th September, we helped launch this years One Good Idea Competition. We were honored to be asked to go to the headquarters of SEAI and participate in this exciting opening. We can't wait to see what ideas will be entered into this years competition but we are still working on our own project, trying to get our climate change and energy efficiency module incorporated in the existing primary school curriculum. We are hoping to have a meeting with the head of the teacher training college, St.Pats very soon to make further progress on our project!!
After taking a break over the summer, we're ready to get back to work!!! We can't believe it's been a year since we formed the group Tree of a Kind!! We are totally psyched for National Tree Day on 10th October. Everyone check out the tree council website, Larch Hill website and teachers, check www.treeday.ie for some cool resources! On Thursday we are going to the SEAI Conference in Dublin to give a presentation to the CEO, so we are really excited!!!
We all had such an amazing day at the SEAI One good Idea National Final in The Mansion House in Dublin today. We were delighted to accept the overall prize at the competition from Aoife Cannon. We cannot thank our teacher Ms.Derwin enough, we couldnt have done it without her!!! Also, we would like to thank Ms. Leah Kay and Ms. Pauline O'Shea for letting us visit St. Georges NS throughout our project.We will be uploading pictures from our magnificent day very soon! This is the team making our very important 4 minute presentation pitch.
Today we are extremely busy preparing for the Grand Final on Tuesday. We are so excited to present our project to all the judges!
We made a couple of adjustments to our Prezi. This is the final draft!! We also put up videos on our school visits page of what the kids think air pollution is. Doing lots of work today!
This is our updated Prezi presentation that we're going to use for the final!!
Yesterday was our final visit to St Georges NS. We really enjoyed teaching them about climate change and energy efficiency and the children were great! We would like to say a big thank you to Ms Kay and Principal O'Shea for allowing us to trial our lessons with them. Today we worked on our Prezi Presentation, updating it for the final on 30th April. Really excited for the final now!!
Today we edited and uploaded a brand new Grainne Green video. This video deals with the topic of air pollution and how we can prevent it in our everyday lives. This video is available to view on the Grainne Green's News section of our website. We also finished our mailout and bought supplies for visiting St. Georges NS tomorow. We also calculated our statistics and have had 2250 unique visitors since the 11th March!!!!
