We entered the Trocaire Better world award on Friday. here is a description of our project
The message of our project is to make a small change to care for the planet.
We are all global citizens (https:vimeo.com/163263749) and we have been learning about things we can do to protect our planet and stop global warming /climate change.
These are some of the actions we have done
Collected plastic bottles to make a greenhouse for the school see us on Twitter @ClondalkinFT and paula galvin@scorpionovasix
Performed a song called “De Colores” for an event during Fairtrade Fortnight for fifty people and a farmer from Honduras see facebook Clondalkin Fairtrade Town
We are growing our own vegetables and herbs , tomatoes, basil, coriander and parsley
We looked at the Trocaire video of Maria and Jazly and spoke about the impact flooding is having on their lives.
We watched the video of Wangaari Mathai “I will be a hummingbird” and made posters
We made posters in groups about the changes we can make
Finally we wrote poems about how we can make small changes for a better world.
We hope you like our project
