5th and 6th class participate in a STEAM Climate Action programme each week until Christmas. They are loving the hands on activities! About STEAM climate action in a box: 5-lesson hands-on introduction to the diverse fields of Climate Action.

Fun, hands-on, creative and participatory – designed to support and engage primary schools in positive Climate Action.
Don’t 6th class look great in their new hoodies? Many thanks to our super PA for organising and funding these, thanks also to Carmel for sizing.
