‘Our Ocean Our Future’ Programme

Recently our 6th classes in Nagle Rice had the fun task of taking care of some Native Sea Animals. Both classes were giving a lesson about Marine Life from Marine Biologist Conor Hinchcliffe from Sea Synergy, Waterville. Each class were tasked with looking after an aquarium for 10 days. We had Shore Crabs, several Gastropods, Prawn, Sea Anemone, Shanny fish(common Blenny) and the STAR of the show (pic 3) Common Starfish. While we observed and recorded to our hearts content we also took time to show off our precious creatures to all the classes in the school. (pic 4,5 and 6) On Conor’s return the pupils showcased their group projects which had been worked on over the 10 days. This was a wonderful start to our Green school theme for this school year, Global Citizenship – Marine Environment. Mr. F.
