Thursday Activity – Climate Change and Oceans Experiment
Age Group: Primary Junior and Senior, Secondary (Junior Cycle)
In this activity, we investigate how water absorbs heat, and the important role our #oceans play in slowing down the effects of #climatechange! We’d love to see your photos and videos of this one! Grab an adult and give it a go.

Friday Share – Water Competition Winners
Age Group: Secondary/All
We received lots of brilliant entries into our Secondary Schools Water Video Competition – it was our first time running a water video competition at Green-Schools and we were so excited to see what you came up with! The winners of the competition were the Green-Schools committee from Ballymakenny College in Drogheda, Co. Louth.
We loved their video because it showcased all the amazing climate actions they are taking in their school to help the environment – like installing water fountains to reduce plastic bottle waste, and harvesting rainwater to flush their toilets. We also loved that they involved their community, interviewing the Irish Coast Guard and carrying out a beach clean-up. Finally, it was clear that a lot of thought and creativity went into the filming and editing of this video, and it looks like they had a lot of fun making it too!
Their prize is a videography workshop at their school and €500 to go towards video equipment or their Green-Schools committee! You can check out Ballymakenny’s winning entry at the link below. Well done Ballymakenny Green-Schools Committee! 😊
