Green-Schools Exhibition at Tuam Library

The launch of the Green-Schools Exhibition was held in Tuam Library on Tuesday, 27th November. The theme this year was water conservation.
Mayor of Tuam Eamon Kitt addressed the children, parents and teachers involved in the project, congratulating them on making their schools more environmentally sound through participating in the initiative. A selection of some of the art work from the project has been put on display for the next week. Artist and ornithologist Gordon D’arcy then gave the children a drawing display, discussing with them water conservation and birdlife as an indicator of water quality.

Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme. The aim of the movement is to increase students’ and participant awareness of environmental issues through classroom studies and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider community.
