Green schools update


Wednesday morning students from TY engaged in a litter pick of the local playground and Tannery Park.
This year we have been working closely with the Tidy Towns on several projects and hope to build on this work over the coming years.
Bat boxes

Mr Mullany's TY3 class have been busy this week constructing Bat Boxes for positioning around the school grounds. This is another Green Schools & TY initiative.

Painting around the school

Massive thank you to Ray and the TYs involved in painting the school fence, the flower barrels and flower beds this week. Thank you also to Mary Byrne, Mary McCrann, Josh, Kim and Amy for all their hard work with planting the beautiful flower pots and window boxes. These flowers are really adding lots of colour to our school and putting a smile on all our faces.

Ms Horn and the school wishes to thank all the students for helping to get the Green Schools Programme well & truly up and running. A huge thanks to the Committee for being so generous with their time, talents and energy.

We placed a new bin-stand in the canteen last week which some students appear to have difficulty understanding. We would ask that you very carefully look at the pictures and place your waste into the relevant coloured bin.

Last week we received our first award recognising all our hard work, The Near Streets Award. This time next year hopefully we'll be heading to Dublin to receive our Green Flag.
