Way to stand out. Well done to Múinteoir Cáit's sixth class for going the extra mile.
In the past two weeks both Múinteoir Michelle Nicholas' Seniors and Múinteoir Eoin's 3rd class had a combined 233 recorded times pupils wore a hi-vis to school. Well done. Well done to every other class for making this important effort. We will continue to make people aware of the importance of being seen throughout February. Perhaps the mornings will be much brighter by March.
Please go to this link to access the details of the competition.
Ten posters from the junior side of the school and ten posters from the senior side of the school will be selected and submitted for entry.
The deadline for submission to the school is the 28th of February. Selected posters will then be send in by the 6th of March.
Thank you to everyone that took part in Hunger Hero Friday this year. Money raised will be given to the Mellon Educate.
