Nurse Paula Kingston a member of the newly formed Green Team in Clonakilty hospital invited students to do a bio blitz in the hospital grounds. In other words, identifying and cataloging what kind of wildlife and plants were on the site. The Transition year Biology class visited the hospital on October 7th, with their teacher Mr O’Sullivan. They met with Nurse Paula Kingston, received some refreshments, and have since made their recommendations following their research
Report from Students:
"On Monday the 7th of October, we visited Mount Carmel Hospital. We walked there and one of the nurses met us at the front entrance. We each got a report sheet on which we wrote down what observations we made, the environmental review and any recommendations we came up with. Our class identified the plants and trees and thought about what staff members could do to receive a green flag. The staff were very nice and we really enjoyed the trip" - Zoe and Dasha

5th Year Retreat- Just as water reflects the face, so one human heart reflects another - Proverbs
The 5th year students enjoyed their day of reflection connecting with nature in our local area.
The day enabled students to reconnect with nature, tap into spirituality of the landscape and reconnect with themselves and each other.
The theme of the day was Just as water reflects the face, so one human heart reflects another. (Proverbs 27:19)
We set off from Timoleague Abbey, stopped off in Courtmacsheery for our morning break and then continued along the Fuchsia Walk. The students were led in prayer and reflection by their RE teachers Ms Harte,Ms Mangan and Ms Harrington around the Mass rock near Broad strand. The experiences & reflection throughout the day allowed students to recognise that self reflection is not only about the self but can also help them see their place and part in the world they live in.
