Biodiversity is the fifth Green-Schools theme.
As we explored this theme, we became more aware of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats and we looked at steps which can be taken to increase biodiversity in our locality.
We learned about different species of plants and animals; some that are native to Ireland and some that are non-native or ‘alien’. We learned how some invasive species can impact on our biodiversity because they sometimes spread too quickly and can endanger our native species as a result.
We also learned about various habitats and ecosystems and what we can do to help preserve and enhance them in our local environment.
As part of our schoolwide project on biodiversity, we created a wonderful ‘Bug Hotel’.

Well done to our Green-Schools Committee for all their hard work and dedication!
