Starting on Friday 20th September, Lusk JNS took part in a global week for climate action. During the week, our classes learned about different aspects of climate change, why bees are so importants, the 3 R’s – Reduce, Re-Use and Recycle, why we depend so much on trees.
We also tried to take the opportunity to get outside and enjoy our beautiful school grounds and appreciate the diversity that exists right here.
The week provided the perfect opportunity to start a new planting project too. With both the Senior and Junior schools working together we have begun to plant along the edge of the carpark. By the end of this planting project the students of Lusk Senior & Junior NS will have planted an impressive 3,000 bulbs, all of which are pollinator friendly. A massive thank you to all of the parents who volunteered this week and made the planting project possible.
Our week of action culminated with a School Strike for Climate. Junior Infants staged a sit-in to show their support as the students from Senior Infants to 6th Class walked out of school to make their voices heard. this week has kick-started a series of activities throughtout the year where children will investigate more issues related to the climate crisis and see the affect of our positive actions within our community.
