Interenet Safety

The 7th of February is Internet Safety Day. Some classes will be exploring ways of keeping safe online. We also will receive an Internet Safety wristband. We have lots of resources for both children and adults on our Internet Safety page
A popular site is Webwise where you can learn all about the internet with Niamh and Fionn through videos and quizzes. 1st and 2nd class had great fun working on “What is the Internet?” today. We will explore more during the week.

Global Citizenship will enable us to discover how our work has influenced people and their local environments worldwide. As Global Citizenship is such a broad theme it is linked to all previous themes we have worked on. We are required to focus on the Litter & Waste aspect of Global Citizenship first.
Today we had great fun in school as we elected 6 more members to our Green-Schools Committee. Many thanks to all candidates in the election. We heard some great speeches and our classrooms are very colourful with posters and canvassing!
