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!

 Patrick was presented with his prize (a Samsung Galaxy Tablet) and a framed copy of his poster during the ceremony.



Workshop on Energy

Our school was lucky enough to get a visit from Emlyn why works for An Taisce. Emlyn came into our school to talk about energy and how to save it.

We did many experiments and learnt about where energy goes after you use fossil fuels. It was a very interesting afternoon.

Green Schools Flag

On Wednesday, the 25th May 2016, St. Marnock’s received their 5th Green Schools Flag for biodiversity. Ms. Mc Elhone, Ms. Thomas, Chloe Crilly and Adam Reid received the flag on behalf of the school. The presentation of the flag took place in the Helix, DCU.

It was very exciting. We were near the front of the stage so we saw everything. They nearly forgot us until Ms.Thomas ran up on stage and quickly said to the man that we were the last ones. We got our Green flag safe and sound so we drove back to St.Marnock’s N.S. I can say now that it was an exciting and special day for St. Marnock’s N.S. Green Schools can’t wait until next year!

Keep a look out for the flag flying outside the school!
