Green Day Thursday 16th of March

Amazing work done on the school garden!!

On Friday the 10th of March volunteers from Amdocs Software Systems came in to our school to revamp our school garden.

They cleared weeds, cleaned out the pond, varnished the benches and planted lovely new flowers for us to enjoy. They did absolutely trojan work!!

This was all organised by Volunteer Ireland and we are extremely grateful for their support.

Take a look for yourself…

Walk on Wednesday!!

On Wednesday the 15th of February both staff and students took part in our first Walk on Wednesday. This was organised by the Ms. Mahon and her very hard working Green School Committee. 

As you can see from the pictures we had two empty car parks and it was great to see the whole school take part on the day.

Well done to Ms. Mahon and her Green School Committee for all the work they put into organising the day.
