Today lots of schools in Ireland are protesting against climate change.  So our school in Ballon decided to do our part. Ms Kildea’s & Ms Murphy’s 6th class led a protest around the school yard at the end of the ceilí.
We did this to raise awareness about climate change.  We were inspired by the Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg who went on strike from school.  We chanted ‘Stop ClimateChange’ and blew whistles to make lots of noise. We also want to save the bees because they pollinate our plants.
We had great fun even though we are very angry that so little is being done to stop climate change!  We all must do more! Time is running out!
