Mount Temple’s Alliance with Cloughjordan Ecovillage.

Cloughjordan Ecovillage, Co. Tipperary was conceived in the mid1990s. Since then it has developed into a pioneering community which serves as a model for sustainable living into the 21st century and acts as an education, research and enterprise centre for all.

On Wednesday, 7 March, Mount Temple was delighted to welcome six members of Cloughjordan to share their experiences with us. Mr Wegimont, Ms Byrne and many students, teachers and special needs assistants were in attendance in addition to grounds staff, technical support staff and members of the student council.

The talks covered many different aspects of developing, living and working in the Ecovillage. This included how the 53 houses were built with special attention paid to the use of renewable sources of energy and minimal impact on the natural environment. We also heard how the Ecovillage employs its own farmers with subscriptions of community members. On their community farm they grow crops (in a biodynamic way) all year round with the use of polytunnels. Crops are harvested twice a week and members take what they need each day from a central collection point.

With an Ecological Footprint of 2 global hectares, less than half that of many Irish communities, Cloughjordan is continuing to work toward reaching a Footprint of 1.8 global hectares thus enabling it to live within the earth’s capacity.

Mount Temple is delighted to have formed an alliance with Cloughjordan in which we will learn from their experiences as we move forward with making our own community as sustainable as possible. To articulate this vision the school’s Sustainability Plan was also outlined at the meeting. With a focus on a Carbon Neutral Building, Sustainable Food Production, Waste Prevention, Sustainable Waste Management and Increasing Biodiversity the plan sets out how our school community will work toward decreasing its own Ecological Footprint.

With a shared vision of a sustainable future the communities of Mount Temple and Cloughjordan look forward to many years of working together toward our common goal.

Mount Temple Pupils play on Direct Provision: performance in University College Galway.

On the 18th of December, Mount Temple students were invited to put on their play ‘Eire: Land of 100,000 Welcomes’ in the O’Donoghue Theatre in Galway University. The students played to a full house made up of students, academics, people in direct provision and the public. There was a short question and answer session with the director, Laura Doak and the cast after the performance. In January, the cast were presented with a certificate from the university. 
There are photos in the Gallery section of website.
