Sustainability projects by DCU students

Two 3rd year students from DCU's primary initial teacher education degree were awarded prizes by SEAI for their projects on "Sustainability in the locality". 1st prize went to Sarah McGurk (pictured right receiving her prize) for her project 'Bray Seafront'. She undertook this project whilst on school placement in November with her 2nd class. Her project was highly praised for the simple yet effective bird feeders which her young class made, they also used recycled material in their seafront dioramas. Her project was also noted as having a strong connect between the local area and a range of sustainability themes. DCU St Pats winner 2
