What are Green Tips:
Mia Deutrom from the green team had an idea, to start a project called Green tips. These tips will change once a month and will be shown here and on the green team page. Try to use these tips as much as possible to help make the world a cleaner place.
February's green tip:
Try and use alternatives for plastic bags in shops like growing your fruits and vegetables at home or buying them loose
Our Website Creator
This is Shea, a 13-year-old 6th Class pupil in Ms. McCabe’s Class.
Shea's many interests include technology, making websites, science, art and design, coding, lego, tinkering and Makey-Makey, architecture, music, creative writing, and basketball.
Shea has lots of ideas, he likes doing projects and presentations, helping out and being a Buddy.
In the Summer of 2018, when the school was under construction, he thought the new school should have a new website and decided to design one. He presented an initial design to Ms. O’Connor and was very excited when his proposal was accepted. Shea had some previous experience in website design but learned a lot
more in the process. It took around 3 months of hard work and dedication but he thoroughly enjoyed working with the school, coming up with ideas and incorporating those from his classmates and teachers into the website. Shea is delighted to have been given this opportunity and now has plans for his own business called WebYak building websites and teaching others.
We are very proud of Shea, and very proud of our wonderful new website.
