Think before you flush!

On Friday the junior infants joined a host of other schools for a fantastic science webinar. We learned all about keeping our rivers, lakes and waterways clean and we learned what can and cannot go down the toilet. We tried out an experiment using wipes and toilet roll in jars of water. We discovered that the toilet roll breaks down and dissolved in water and that wipes do not. They should never be flushed down the toilet.
We also had lots of fun creating a blockage in our pipes and discovered what would happen if we blocked our toilets with paper and wipes.
There are lots of scientists in Junior Infants.
