Water Code
We held a whole school competition to generate a winning Water Code for our school in May. Junior Infants all the way up to 6 class got the opportunity to enter. There was a huge number of entries and the Green School had to decide on the winning one. The entries were fantastic. In the end the Green School Committee went with 1 water catchphrase, 1 water poem and 1 water song. :o

Water Poem
Water, water everywhere,

Water Song

By Naoimi Conlon & Isobel Bergin

We held a Water Action day in our school to build awareness about water and how important it is to save water. The Green School Committee came up with lots of ideas, they even researched water experiments. Here is what we did in school for the day. In assembly we announced the winning Water Codes. Everyone wore blue to school and brought water as their drink for the day.
