Some Good News to Announce !!

The children and staff of St Fiachra’s Junior School were very proud when awarded their 2nd Green Flag for Energy Conservation. They had a special whole school ceremony on Wednesday 27th June, when the children from 2nd Class raised the new flag and pennant, which you can see flying high outside the front door of the school.

The very proud moment when Aoibhean and Conor collected

our second Green Flag for Saving Energy.

We have started work on our Green School Courtyard!!

Boys and girls in 2nd Class have been busy collecting wellies, old CD’s, old watering cans/hose and green 2lt 7up bottles to decorate the area iN true ‘recycling recreating art’.

Our local scouts, beavers and cubs along with some parents have been helping us out with our courtyard and spent some time out of their Mid Term Break to give a helping hand.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL YOUR HELP
