Will you be going?

Carlow Educate Together National School will be supporting their pupils in the Carlow School Strike for Climate Change.

They will be bringing 4th, 5th and 6th classes to the Town Hall this Friday from 1pm to 2pm for a protest.

Schools from across the country are striking to demand immediate action on climate change.

As well as marches in Dublin and Cork there will be strike events outside local authority offices nationwide and locally at school gates across the country, organisers say.

It’s part of a global strike called by 16-year-old schoolgirl Greta Thunberg who began protesting outside Swedish Parliament last August. Similar strikes have happened since all across the world.

If you wish to join Carlow Educate Together, they would be delighted to have you and if you have younger children that would like to come, you are welcome to collect them from school so they can also join in this important movement.

The school's management added: "This event is not only for Carlow Educate Together. We need to get it out to every school in the county."
