"This is an inspirational programme. So worthwhile. We feel very blessed that we were part of it. It awakened and empowered the children to know that we can all make a difference. The programme helped create a positive link and lines of communication between the teachers and the parents, as we worked towards a shared goal, with the children. 'Is féidir linn go léir, le chéile'. it offered a platform for the children to share their experiences with their peers, problem solve and imagine and re-imagine other ways to solve the current litter problem. The children would come in with a huge smile, positive body language each time they returned the pack and it was obvious they felt so good about their contributions. The programme supports so many elements of the curriculum and enriches our lives as active citizens. Go raibh maith agaibh- Picker Pals Team! I am looking forward to working with the Picker pals every year as a teacher, if possible to engage & inspire the children I facilitate in their learning to engage in environmental campaigns that they feel they can make a difference in as active citizens. I hope there are opportunities for participation for pupils who are in all classes in primary school. Go raibh maith agaibh. This year the Picker Pals programme also helped us feel more connected as Global Citizens and it was a great honour to meet pupils and teachers in China working on the same cause as we were. We felt very much a part of One World and One mission. Go raibh maith agaibh. We were delighted that the books were available in Irish as we used Picker Pals as part of of Irish programme. I felt very lucky to have had the opportunity to be part of this programme.
