Moyderwell Pupils To Play It Cool In School To Raise Climate Change Awareness

Posted by


First class pupils at Moyerwell Mercy who are taking part in the April Cool’s Day initiative.

MOYDERWELL Mercy’s first class children are challenging the people of Kerry to join them in helping to tackle climate change through their April Cool’s Day initiative – and they’ve even written to Kerry TD Danny Healy Rae to get in on the act.

The Tralee students have been working on the topic of Environmental Awareness and Care, and have entered the Solar Schools Competition.

On April 2, Moyderwell will celebrate the inaugural April Cool’s Day. The initiative involves turning off all non-essential electrics for the day; laptops, i-pads, whiteboards, photocopiers, phones and more.

The classes, taught by Mr Holly and Mr. Sheehan, want to raise awareness of how energy is used every day and become efficient users of electricity.

On the day itself, the school will have several events such as a ‘Cool Síul’ in the Town Park, poster competitions, ‘old school’ games and much, much more.

The children have been very busy on the lead up to the day, getting the word out to the community.

They have written letters to Kerry’s TDs, councillors and local media. Not only that, they are practising what they preach at home by turning off non-essential electrics and gently reminding parents to do the same.
