Ms O' Mahony's 4th class walked to the beach in Balbriggan stopping on route to look at the commemorative plague on the wall of the Sack of Balbriggan. The aim of their trip was to investigate the litter that was on the beach and to look at the marine life. In these Covid times outdoor learning is fun and enaging. Ms O' Mahony's class is the Green Schools Committee and are leading the learning on litter, waste and marine life this year.
