Environmental Awareness and Care
At Naas CNS we are very lucky to have an enthusiastic and caring Green Schools Committee. They are working hard on our Green School Plan, implementing actions e.g. Litter Wardens, Tidiest Classroom Inspections, and keeping the classes informed in any upcoming events or reminding them about ongoing initiatives.
Our 2nd class recently took part in a poster campaign to remind all of the classes in our school of the importance of taking care of our environment and their posters are now proudly displayed in all classrooms. This then inspired other classes to create their own posters too!
As you can see from the images on our site, our school garden is a fabulous resource and place of learning - but it only stays that way because our pupils take care of it so well, all year round. All classes are involved in its maintenance - be it through planting, weeding and tidying, decorating or making homes and feeding stations to attract insects and birds. Over the last year we have also begun composting too. The school garden is a busy place all year round.
