CSPE and Environmental Issues at Mercy College Coolock

Posted by on Thursday, January 5, 2012

Second year students from Avoca attended an environmental workshop at Dublin Zoo in November 2011. Students from Avoca are completing their CSPE project on Environmental Issues. The workshop was very informative. Orla (Dublin Zoo Educational Co-ordinator) spoke about how global warming, litter and the environment are affecting animals, animal habitats and endangered species all over the world.

A big congratulations to Avoca for winning a grant from a ‘Neat Streets’ competition (run by An Taisce) where the students came up with a number of ideas on how to tackle litter in our school. Their main idea was a cleaning kit for each form to encourage students to be proud of their classroom by keeping it clean, recycling paper and bottles. Every little bit helps!!!
