Birds, Bins, Bikes and a Big Splash at St. Louis
Today, we took the Road Trip on two wheels as Ronan (my trusty navigator) and I cycled from ECO-UNESCO HQ to St. Louis High School in Rathmines.
We could have done with some of CBS Charleville’s safe cycle paths today as we negotiated the Dublin traffic!
Three projects at St. Louis are shortlisted this year, which is a fantastic result. We were treated to a quick presentation of all of the groups activities and then spent some time chatting to them about the what, where, when and why.
The girls split into several different groups and focused on bringing birds to the school grounds, creating recycling bins for all areas and reducing the amount of water used in the school. The results were quite exciting for all!
The girls at St. Louis now know a lot more about birds, and have even seen a few take residence in their garden crafty birdhouses. The have introduced recycling boxes in every science lab for some unique recyclables (stamps, batteries, mobile phones, etc). They’ve even seen an impressive 10% reduction in water usage thanks to the Splash! Campaign.
There’s lots to see from the St. Louis girls, so be sure to check out their stands at the Young Environmentalists Awards Showcase!
