One way in which a primary school in the Church of Ireland Diocese of Cork marked the Climate Strike on recent Fridays was to hold a special assembly to coincide with the events worldwide.
The children of St Mary’s Church of Ireland School, Carrigaline made some very effective posters for their Climate Strike Assembly.
Some of the homework the children were given was to listen carefully to news reports of the Climate Strikes in Cork and other Cities in Ireland and Globally and report back the new back to the rector, Canon Elaine Murray on the numbers of people who marched for our Climate.
Some of the posters have been on display in St Mary’s Church. The Green Flag St Mary’s School and the Eco Congregation parish of Carrigaline Union try and highlight environmental issues together whenever possible.
