Team Tree Top Troop was started by Ms Rochford and our science class. In the group there was me, Niamh, Abbey, Adam, David and James. We entered the One Good Idea competition run by Sustainable Energy Ireland. They are always trying to find new ways to improve the environment. We got through to the top 50 schools out of thousands of entries all around Ireland. We then had to put our idea forward.
On Monday 2nd March and Tuesday 3rd March Team Tree Top Troop went around to different primary schools in the area. We went to Kilmuckridge primary school, Ballygarrett primary school and Screen primary school.
We showed them our PowerPoint presentation. We each said our bit, then Abbey told them about our competition. You could buy a tree with the voucher we gave out on Saturday 7th March in these garden centres, Hyland’s of Oulart, Cois na habhainn, Fig Tree, Springmount and Kilcannon. Then you take a Trelfie and post it on our website www.treetoptroop.com. The students seemed to love the idea, so did the teachers!
We hope we get through to the next stage of the competition because we really enjoyed this project so far and we would love to share our idea.
