Well done to all the boys for all the effort they put into making their decorations out of recycled materials. Well done to Kevin whose decoration was chosen to represent the school in the North Tipperary County Council Competition.

As our building work will be starting in the New year we will commence our work on our third Green Flag in September 2014. We are continuing to use our different bins to recycle our paper and cardboard and compost.We are reminding our teachers to turn off the lights at break time and to close the doors. We are still collecting old mobile phones for the Jack and Jill foundation.
Children’s Christmas Decorations Competition for Schools
North Tipperary County Council is pleased to announce that the very popular Christmas Decorations Competition is taking place again this year.
The challenge is for children to make Christmas Tree Decorations out of recycled materials such as eggshells, cardboard, newspapers, plastic and glass bottles, tin cans,
milk and juice cartons, etc. All of the decorations need to be made from recycled materials and the competition aims to get children and their parents thinking about how to reuse and recycle materials that might otherwise be thrown away.
Please drop you entries into the school on or before Friday 22nd November.
