Patrick Jackson, a local environmentalist visited the school on Tuesday and spoke to the 3rd and 6th classes on caring for our planet and local area. He brought along his "Cloak of Howth" (which Mr. McInerney is modelling in the attached picture) which is full of items he has collected on the beaches around the Howth Peninsula. It is a great visual reminder of the amount of rubbish that pollutes or local area and to do something about it he is organising a beach clean up on Sutton Beach on Saturday 11th, November at 11 o'clock. (@11 on 11/11). For anyone going along bring wellies and rubber/garden gloves. Bags will be provided and all are welcome. Meet on grass area opposite Santa Sabina. We thank Patrick for his visit and wish him all the best with his work and his beach clean up.
