Celtic torcs date back to very early periods of Celtic history. Originally, the torcs were worn by men only, and some people believe they were battle jewelry – worn as decoration, to be sure, but also to stop a blade.

Whether that’s the case or not, they were – and perhaps still are! – a sign of rank and wealth. Those with money wore Celtic torcs of gold and silver; those without wore Celtic torcs of iron. In either case, the torc remains a symbol of Celtic influence.

Check out our lovely pastel drawings of ‘A Vase of Flowers’. We had to use our fingers to colour in our drawings. Tough work but somebody has to do it!

St Aidan’s Senior National School in Tallaght is a proud member of the world wide Green Schools Project. The aim of this global project is to encourage schools to actively reduce their harmful or negative effects on the environment.

The green schools committee of St Aidan’s  is a small committee made up of both teachers and students from all classes.    The main goal of the green schools committee is to achieve the Five Green Flags. The flags represents Litter Awareness, Energy Conservation, Water Usage, Travelling and Social Impacts. They must be obtained in this order. The flags are not just awards for being a clean school but demonstrate that schools are contributing in a positive way to the saving of the environment and reducing polluting effects. This year, 2011, we are aiming to achieve our first Green Flag, which is for Litter Awareness. The pupils and staff have put in a tremendous effort making our school green and we look forward to continuing our progress for the coming year!!
