In June we received our Third Green Flag for the Water Theme. The flag-raising was performed by Councillor Michael Burke, Cathaoirleach, Comhairle Contae Mhaigh Eo. Also pictured: James Hession (Chairperson, Board of Management), Phil Roche (múinteoir), Sharon Cameron (Environmental Awareness Officer, Mayo County Council), Justin, James, Thomas, Rebecca and Orla (Green Schools Committee). We are very lucky to have Tom Murphy and Rose McHale who take excellent care of our school and grounds. Click on the photos to enlarge.
On arrival in the morning we are often greeted by hares or rabbits playing on the school grounds. One of them is braver than the others and is a regular visitor to this flower tub!
We are delighted to have been awarded our Third Green Flag for the Water Theme. The presentation took place in the McWilliam Park Hotel, Claremorris with Justin, Rebecca and Thomas accepting the flag and certificate. Also pictured are Pádraig Ó Beirn (Principal), Sharon Cameron (Environmental Awareness Officer Mayo Coco), Mary Forde (Mayo Coco), John McCarthy (Wrigley’s) and Eva Gannon (An Taisce).
Our school took part in Bounce-athon ‘10 which aims to raise awareness of children with learning disabilities and to raise funds for Western Care Association’s childhood services throughout Mayo. A Bouncing Castle was delivered to the school on Sports Day and a total of €363 was raised for a very worthy cause.
