Development Education Progress – Our First Citizen’s Passport!

IMG_1089This year the school community, with notable effort from the Transition Year group, has worked hard to establish Development Education in the school.

We have recently been awarded our Citizen’s Passport – for Emerging Engagement with Global Citizenship Education from World Wise Global Schools. Activities and initiatives that we have undertaken this year include Green Schools, who have just been awarded their first flag, Show Racism the Red Card, Student Council events, Young Social Innovators (YSI), One Good Idea Competition, the integration of development education across the curriculum and embedding it into school policy and ethos.

The Transition Years entry into the One Good Idea Competition run by the SEAI has reached the national final for 2017/2018, taking place on Tuesday the 15th of May in The Printworks, Dublin Castle. They will present their idea to reduce energy consumption and reduce the effects of climate change by encouraging the school, wider community and local business owners to cycle to work and school.

Well done to all involved and thank you to Ms Nolan for her fantastic work with the teams as they carried out this important work.
