Following on from their recent prize-winning entry “Community Involvement with the Camac River” in the Globe Ireland competition the Fourth Class pupils from Clonburris NS Clondalkin with their teacher Paula Galvin were interviewed for an RTE podcast called Ecolution by Nicky Coghlan & Hugh Fowler.
The children with scientists Aileen Bright & Sabina Moore participated in water sampling on the Camac, looking for pollution-sensitive and pollution-tolerant invertebrates. They found flattened mayflies, Waterhouse & snails, and brown caddisfly. The children really enjoyed their water sampling on the river and will continue to join Friends of the Camac in the monthly clean-up.
Congratulations to teacher Paula and Class members and well done all.
