3rd and 4th Class have entered a competition with www.waste.ie

Our Upcycling Project

  1. We used some old pallets, screws, primer and paint to construct our Friendship bench
  2. The tools we used to craft our bench were a handsaw a measuring tape, a screw gun, a drill, a set square, sand paper, a pencil and a paintbrush
  3. We cut the pallets in half and we cut some lengths of timber to make the legs and armrests
  4. We constructed the bench by screwing and nailing the pieces together
  5. We sanded and painted our bench
  6. Each pupil put a handprint on our bench.
  7. Lastly we made our “Friendship Bench” sign and put it on our bench
