Green Schools Action Day 2016
The Date - Thursday 25th February 2016; The Time - Morning! Holy Family JNS "pulled the plugs" and switched off all electrical equipment for our "Action Day" for our 2nd Green Flag project, ENERGY. It was a chance to save on energy costs and see how we would survive without all the modern gadgets we have become so used to. The children could see what it was like in schools before laptops and interactive whiteboards. For some teachers, it might have been their first time to work without these aids - for others, it was a "blast from the past". Eventually, we all went "Back to the Future" and powered up again. It was a very useful learning experience for us all, aswell as saving a few Euro!! Click on the photos below to see how the rooms looked on the day.
