School Strike for Climate Action.
On Friday 20th March, students from Moville Community College took part in the Global Climate Strike. Members of the Student Council spoke at the assemblies to highlight problems in our environment. Patsy Toland was invited into the school to speak to the First years about Climate Action and how we can all do our bit to help the environment. His talk was inspiring and hopefully has motivated some students to change their habits.
The First years then took part in a Climate Quiz hosted by our TY students. There was fierce competition and after a few tie-breaker questions “The Power Rangers” won. The quiz concluded with a walk around the school with students holding banners and posters about the need for Climate Action.
Some students from 2nd and 3rd year attended the protest held in Market Square in Letterkenny. They met up with other schools and took part in the local demonstrations. There was a really positive atmosphere there and everybody enjoyed the event and felt that it was worthwhile to attend.
