Looking After Our Ocean Project

Our school project this year is  focused on Our Ocean, biodiversity and keeping our ocean free from sea pollution.

Ms. McLoughlin’s first class, Ms. Coade’s hearing impaired class, Ms. Kavanagh’s second class and Ms. Glynn’s second class are all involved in this year’s project.

We are  twinning with Genevieve’s class in Brittany in France.  They are involved in the same project in their country.  Our French friends are at school at École Notre Dame de la Charité in Saint Pol de Leon near Roscoff in Brittany.

We are working with Therese and the Teacher-Artist-Partnership (the TAP programme) to explore and share our findings about the ocean through the medium of art.

We have written and are producing a musical play focusing on our quest to encourage all to do our best to keep our oceans pollution free.

Many many thanks to Liam Twomey of GALWAY ATLANTAQUARIA

for sponsoring the bus to Marino College of Education

so that we can spread our message of Saving the Oceans to all the students training to be primary school teachers.

(Hopefully they will pass on this message to all the students they teach during all the years that they are teaching.)

We have visited Galway Atlantaquaria, learned about our oceans and have displayed our algae art there.

We are working with Atlantic Technological University.  With them we were involved in a beach clean up

and also in a workshop and art session on algae.
