Our new travel committee had our first meeting and outing on 15/11/16. A very big welcome to our new committee members from the first and Senior Infant classes. Welcome to Clodagh Mc Kenna , Connel Mc Crudden, Síomha Ronaghan, Mya Lynch, Elinga Mukasejevcuite, Caitlin O’ Brien, Faustas Rudys and Ryan Lynch. Our new Travel committee will have the awesome task of promoting sustainable travel within the school community and beyond. The work also involves maintenance of previous themes Litter, Energy and Water.
On the 22/11/16 we went out on our walkability audit. The purpose of the audit is to assess how pedestrian friendly a particular route is. The route we chose was from St Louis Infant school to Mc Nally’s car park via the roundabout car park returning via the Clones road. We chose this route as a possible park /stride location. We found that over all the route was reasonably friendly to young children provided they were accompanied by a responsible adult. We had ample supervision on the day from Mrs Greenan, Miss Rocks, Miss Burns, and Miss Lynch. There was lots to notice on such a short route many of which were positive. The winter shrubs were beautiful as well as the wonderful view into the convent park. However the footpath along the roundabout car park is in need of repair. Unfortunately there was some litter to be seen.
Many thanks to Sorcha Brophy from An Taisce who was our group leader for the event. With her help we compiled a report which will be forwarded to RSA officer in Monaghan Co. Council
