Ms. Costello's class was selected to represent the school as part of the ‘Big Beach Clean’ on Friday 17th September. Beach Clean is a Clean Coasts initiative.
The class walked to Malahide Beach where they were met by Sinead McCoy, from the Environmental Education Unit with An Taisce and given beach clean up equipment.
The class got straight to work finding all types of litter including plastic cups, bottles, sunglasses and even a bunch of keys!
The highlight of the day for the class was certainly being filmed by RTÉ's News 2 Day. Some of the class even got to be interviewed. You can watch the episode online here:
The class were delighted to have this opportunity to learn more about marine litter and the part we can all play in protecting our environment.
