PUPILS at Gaelscoil Chill Dara went on strike on Wednesday last to demonstrate their concern about the damage that is being done to the environment.
The pupils hope that by engaging in this action they will draw attention to the huge issue of climate change and the role which people have played in damaging the earth.
The pupils pictured here refrained from smiling for the photograph as they wanted to portray an ‘angry’ image.
“The school is supportive of the children and while we cannot condone missing class time, the ‘stailc’ was conducted in a dignified and respectful way,” a spokesperson for the school said.
“Tá áthas orainn go bhfuil na daltaí seo ag smaoineamh faoin timpeallacht agus go bhfuil siad sásta oibriú chun an domhain a dhéanamh níos fearr,” he added.
