Expo Exhibition in RDS

On Thursday the Green schools committee, along with the Green schools coordinators, headed to the RDS for the Expo Exhibition.

The focus of this year’s Expo was Climate Action and inspiring each other to tackle climate change in our schools, homes and communities. 

We saw experiments, activities and games based on the themes of the Green Schools programme. 

We had an informative and fun day! 




St Marnock’s have collection boxes for your old batteries. The boxes are placed on the window sill by the garden. 

It is an easy and environmentally friendly way to get rid of unwanted batteries round the house!

Chess in 4th Class

For the last few weeks, 4th class have been learning how to play and improve at chess. Our coach, Eoin, from Portmarnock Chess club has been teaching us. First we revised how each piece moves. Next, we played small games such as ‘Chasing’ and ‘Give-away Chess’. Finally, we began to play full games.

On Tuesday the 27th of February, the two 4th classes came together to have a tournament. There were six rounds. We all moved between the two rooms as our partner changed for each round.

The winners were Sophie Ashmore (3rd Place and Best Girl), Zack O’ Malley (2nd Place) and Leonids Bernsteine (1st Place and Best Overall Boy)

It was amazing and fun to learn- Sophie
