Derry Irish school pupils at Gaelscoil Na Daróige receive Irish language Recycling Awareness Class

Recyling Awareness Class
Pupils at Gaelscoil Na Daróige in Derry have received a Recycling Awareness Class in the medium of Irish from Council’s Waste and Recycling Officer, Julie Hannaway, and Irish Language Officer Pól Ó Frighil. Pupils from Primary 1 up to Primary 7 were told about the journey of waste and how to recycle correctly during the session which was held to mark Recycling Week. The initiative is also part of the school’s Recycling Education Programme which has seen them implement practical measures including recycling food waste and allocating mixed recycling bins within classrooms. Council’s Waste and Recycling Officer Julie Hannaway said she was heartened by the pupil’s positive attitude to recycling. “It was a real joy delivering the Recycling Education Programme to pupils at Gaelscoil Na Daróige with the help of my colleague and Gaeilgeoir Pól,” she said. “The enthusiasm and interest shown by the pupils and staff was really positive and brought to life our ethos for Recycle Week which is ‘We do. Because it matters’. “Council have been running a recycling education programme for a number of years now and we are always looking for new ways to engage with schools and pupils to help them on their recycling journey. “We all have a role to play in reducing the amount of rubbish we generate and ensuring that it is recycled right.” Any local schools interested in taking part in Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Recycling Programme can contact Julie.Hannaway@derrystrabane.com.

I nGaeilge
Fuair daltaí ó Ghaelscoil na Daróige i nDoire oiliúint ar an athchúrsáil trí Ghaeilge ag ceardlann speisialta a eagraíodh ag an Oifigeach Athchúrsála, Julie Hannaway, agus ag Oifigeach Gaeilge na Comhairle, Pól Ó Frighil. D’fhoghlaim páistí ó Rang 1 suas go dtí Rang 7 faoin dóigh le bheith ag athchúrsáil mar is ceart ag ceardlann speisialta a eagraíodh le ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar an tSeachtain Athchúrsála. Chuir an tionscnamh seo le clár na scoile chun feasacht na bpáistí ar an Athchúrsáil a mhúscailt, agus chun spreagadh a thabhairt dóibh rudaí praiticiúla a dhéanamh ar nós dramhaíl bia a athchúrsáil agus araidí measctha athchúrsála a chur ar fáil laistigh de na seomraí ranga. Dúirt Julie Hannaway, Oifigeach Athchúrsála na Comhairle gur mór an t-ardú croí a fuair sí nuair a chonacthas di an meon dearfach a bhí ag na páistí i leith cúrsaí athchúrsála. “B’iontach an rud é an Clár Oideachais ar an Athchúrsáil a chur ar fáil ag Gaelscoil na Daróige le cuidiú ó mo chomhghleacaí le Gaeilge, Pól”. “Thaispeáin na daltaí agus foireann na scoile suim mhór agus díograis iontach le linn ár bhfeachtais chun ceiliúradh a dhéanamh ar an tSeachtain Athchúrsála a d’úsáid an mana “Déanann muid. Mar gur fiú é” i mbliana. “Tá clár oideachais ar an athchúrsáil á chur ar fáil ag an Chomhairle leis na blianta, ach tá sí i gcónaí ag aimsiú bealaí nua le bheith ag plé le scoileanna agus le daltaí scoile le cuidiú leo feasacht ar an athchúrsáil a ardú” “Ní mór dúinn ar fad an líon bruscair a tháirgeann muid a laghdú agus le cinntiú go n-athchúrsáiltear an bruscar seo mar is ceart” Má tá suim ag scoil ar bith páirt a ghlacadh i gcláir athchúrsála Chomhairle Chathair Dhoire agus Cheantar an tSratha Báin ní mór teagmháil a dhéanamh le Julie.Hannaway@derrystrabane.com.
