5th classes learning about The Grand Canal – Environmental awareness and care

The boys and girls in 5th class were learning all about the Grand Canal.

Eanna NĂ­ Lamhna who is an Irish biologist came in to the school to talk about the history of the canal and the things you might see there.

Then we went to the canal and studied the flora (flowers) and fauna (wildlife/animals) that were present at the canal.

It was great fun and we learned so much and we learned how important it is to keep the water in the canal clean to protect all the living things.
