As part of the 70th Reunion in June, we are busy designing and planning a wall hanging to celebrate this Special Birthday.
We completed a Felt Wall Hanging for our 60th Reunion and our theme was Our Locality.
If you have a suggested Theme for this Years celebration, please let us know !!!
Felt is a non-woven textile that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together. Felt can be made of natural fibres such as wool or synthetic fibres such as acrylic. There are many different types of felts for industrial, technical, designer and craft applications. While some types of felt are very soft, some are tough enough to form construction materials. Felt can vary in terms of fiber content, colour, size, thickness, density and more factors depending on the use of the felt.
SEAI in partnership with a number of the Discover Primary Science & Maths Discover Centres , Local Authorities and other organisations throughout Ireland delivers workshops to primary schools during the academic year.
There are two types of workshops:
- Junior Primary “Guzzler” workshop: ‘Guzzler’ the puppet will teach children about energy efficiency and environmental awareness through participation in a range of games and activities. Suitable for senior infants, 1st and 2nd class pupils.
- Senior Primary “Energy Challenge” workshop: The workshop is interactive, curriculum based and cover the principals of energy, the current global problems and what we can do to help. Students learn about the science of energy and climate change through participation in experiments and playing the 'energy game'. All round they are very hands on and fun. Suitable for 3rd to 6th class pupils.
