Burren Beo School Tour- The children concluded their Burren Beo project with a tour of the Burren.
The whole school took part in a ‘CLEAN UP’ of the surrounding school environment today Friday 12th June. The children have been working really hard to try and achieve the Green Flag for Boston N.S. We are now recycling and reusing as much as possible, as well as ensuring the environment is litter free.
Projects by the Senior-room:
The children of Boston N.S. were fortunate to be asked by the Burren Beo Trust to meet Prince Charles yesterday 19-05-15 near Carron. Two children from Boston N.S. were chosen that had recently graduated from Eco Beo. The children shared some of their knowledge with Prince Charles about the flora, fauna and folklore.

The children in the junior room were learning about forces in Science this week. The main focus was on the force of wind and how it can generate electricity through wind turbines. Each child got the chance to make their own wind turbine and test it out by blowing on them. This showed the children the effect wind has on wind turbines and how they work.
The children in the Senior room have created projects based upon countries in Europe. Each child presented their project to the class.
This week the junior room have being learning about Springtime, the farm and machinery/jobs that used to be done long ago compared to now.
