Thanks to the Costello and Higgins families for getting the carpooling off to a great start this fortnight!
Well done also to Isaac and the O'Sullivan family!
As you might be aware, we are entering a Carpooling competition as part of our Greenschool Travel flag. Here is the info in case you missed it:
We need your help with a Greenschool competition called “The Big Travel Challenge”.
During the first 2 weeks of February, we are asking if any of you could please carpool to school on any suitable days? Share a drive with a family you might know that lives near you, and help make a difference to our environment and our health and also help us with our Travel flag.
If you wouldn’t mind sharing a photo of your journey to school, to be put on our website Greenschool page (not Facebook) of this carpooling, we would be thrilled to enter these pictures and our results in a competition. An Taisce might like to use them too so only send photos you are happy to share.
We are choosing ‘carpooling’ as the mode of transport we are promoting in this competition during the 10 school days between 3rd and 14th February 2020. We will survey the children during the fortnight to count how many are carpooling. (We will promote other modes of transport later in the year when weather improves).
The winning school will win a cash prize of €1,000 to be used for our Greenschool, travel programme and 4 runners up will win €500 for their schools.
We would really appreciate your help with this.
Thank you everyone!
