Registration is now open for Marine Week! Each year we celebrate our wonderful oceans, coasts and marine environments through a week of interactive, online learning and fun.

This year Marine Week will run from Monday 24th – Friday 28th April. Every day we will be releasing brand new videos and resources right here on this page, including five new Ocean Wonders videos, where we will learn all about fascinating sea creatures, Draw with Rob art tutorials and much, much more!

We will have live webinars on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (aimed at senior primary) where we will hear from some special guests marine experts, including Flossie from Flossie and the Beach Cleaners, and Dr Noirin from Galway Atlantaquaria. On Friday, secondary schools are invited to join us for our Marine Film Club event, and to learn about the opportunities to volunteer as a citizen scientist, from Dave Wall at the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

If that wasn’t enough, we will also be announcing the winners of the National Marine Creative Writing Competition, and on Thursday we will have students from all over the country joining us in Athlone for our National Marine Environment Conference 2023!

Throughout the week, spot prizes will be awarded to registered participants who share your Marine Week work with us on social media by tagging @GreenSchoolsIre #MarineWeek23.  For any queries, please contact Caoimhe at

We can’t wait for you to join us for an ocean of fun!
