Our green Schools had a very exciting week this week. We attended a protest outside Leinster House in Dublin with over 400 other children from different schools. We were protesting the inaction of our government to tackle the very important issue of Climate change. We got the bus from Ashbourne and walked there. We shouted slogans like “We want change” and “What do we want? Climate Action! When do we want it? NOW!”. We even made it on the news!

After the protest we had our lunch in St. Stephens Green before getting the bus back. We would like to thank our teachers Emily, Robert and Carole Pinto for coming with us !
We had a fantastic day!
