Mr. O’Connell’s 4th class have been learning about the energy crisis. With fossils fuels so expensive, we have discussed the importance of renewable energy sources such as wind power and solar power.  This topic fit very well with the Setanta Wind Park Art Competition that Mr O’Connell’s class have entered. SSE Renewables are renaming one of their local Wind Farms to Setanta Wind Park. They are running an art competition with a €6000 euro IT prize fund for schools. The theme of the competition is our very own local mythical figure Setanta. Mr O’Connell’s 4th class children have been combining their knowledge of geography, history and their artistic skills in this competition. The class are working hard to get their entries completed for the deadline in February.
