World Water Day
The school marked World Water Day in a number of different ways. The centrepiece of the day was a ‘Walk for Water’. The object of the walk was to highlight the distances people in certain parts of the world have to walk for water.
Over the previous few weeks, the children had brought in used plastic bottles. These bottles were filled using water from Barry the Barrel. The children then carried the water bottles on their walk around Herbertstown. The Walk was led by our water mascot, Spencer Sponge. Afterwards, the pupils brought their bottles home with them with the aim of using the water to water plants etc.
Below is a gallery of photographs from the day.
Prior to the walk, the junior infants joined forces with the pupils of the senior classroom to take part in a water themed quiz.
