On the 15th of November, the Green School Committee were paid a visit by our Green School Officer for our next flag, Allison Phillips.

 

She is the Dublin Team Leader and Cycling Development and Travel Officer. The girls met with Allison in the hall where she spoke about our new flag, answered all our questions and inspired us with new ideas to continue working on our past themes. The girls spoke about their "Theme Teams" and what areas they are focused on. 

Thank you Allison for visiting our school!

On the 11th of March 2022, Hollypark GNS will be going plastic free for the day to promote and spread awareness for our Marine Environment. Keep an eye out for helpful posters and top tips around the school with ways each of us can eliminate or reduce single-use plastics in our daily lives. Each class will be provided with informative lessons, videos and art packs. Keep an eye on this page for all updates and news!

Clean Up Progress

Well done to our 6th Class committee members for focusing on keeping our astro pitch clean and tidy! The girls have kept an eye on the pitch and spend time each week analysing the rubbish found, in order to see what changes we can make to our routines. The girls are working hard with our theme of Global Citizenship: Marine Environment by updating each class about what waste is found and what progress has been made.

Super work girls!

DCS For Bees is an industry initiative led by Host in Ireland to help save Ireland's declining bee population. This sub initiative aims to bring an industry together in a way that has never been done before. 

 

Bees are critically endangered.  They are a key contributor to the pollination of our crops, but sadly, 33% of Irish bees are facing extinction.  They are an indicator for biodiversity in general and once a species is extinct this cannot be reversed and the balance of nature is affected forever. 

We are delighted to be a part of the Raising The Landscape and Host in Ireland Orchard programme and received our Certificate of Participation in recognition of our involvement.
