Each and every child in school has planted a sunflower seed in a small pot. When these are ready we will plant them in a designated area on the school field. The idea is for each class to plant a sunflower circle.

St. Dominic's Grammar School for Girls

We took part in Waste Week our focus was on recycling. We held a 'Cash for Clobber' appeal, with all the money raised going to the development charity Trocaire. We set up a cash for clobber team who desiigned and presented an asembly resource at all our year group assemblies. Our teams visited classroom in rotation each morning during the appeal week (actually 10 days!) to encourage donations. Team members also manned the collection point early each morning. We collected 460 large bags (full black bin bags) of cloth as part of our Waste Week appeal.
