Climate Change
We all know how climate change affects our lives.  The recent Hurricane Ophelia is a good example!!!  In Rathangan School we are doing our bit to raise awareness of and reduce climate change.  We are recycling, using less water and turning the lights off when we are not using them.  Also this year we are going for our 4th Green School Flag which is ‘TRAVEL’.  This ties in well with climate change as it requires us to try walk, cycle or carpool where possible instead of using the cars.  We ask that all the families in our community do their bit for climate change.  Thank you from all at St. Anne’s N.S.
