One Good Idea

One Good Idea

A group of 5th and 6th class boys have been working over the past few months with Mr Kilcrann on an energy saving project which aims to promote climate change awareness among our schools and the wider school community.

The One Good Idea is run by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland and we have just received the news that we have been selected among the top 20 application from around the country and we will now go on to the next stage of the competition, before hopefully progressing to the national final in Dublin Castle in May.

The groups submission towards the One Good Idea under the category of saving energy at school presented the idea of energy efficient exercise bikes which will generate energy for the school, this proposal was two fold as these exercise bikes need to be pedalled and so the classes will also be getting exercise daily in the process !!

We will have more information on the project over the coming weeks. In the meantime any ideas, suggestions or recommendations you have on the project please let us know as we are now working on the presentation pitch towards the next phase of the competition.
