Carpooling School Of the Year!
We are just thrilled to announce that our school has won the Carpooling school of the year award in the Greenschool Big Travel Challenge Award ceremony today. This took place live via a Zoom webinar and thanks to 5th class and Mr Foley for hosting and to the classes and families who tuned in and cheered us on. We could hear the shouts coming from upstairs! We opened the parcel that Greebschool’s Rebecca sent us last week, during the event and were absolutely blown away to discover a trophy, a framed plaque and a cheque for €500! We will spend this on the Travel theme and how it is spent will be discussed at the next committee meeting.
We need to thank our amazing Greenschool inspector Angela Wall for being there for us at every stage of this Travel flag. Thanks to the children and parents for their enthusiasm and to principal Robbie O’Connell and staff for being so open to ideas, competitions and so kind in their genuine well wishes today. Thanks to every child who was ever on the committee and to everyone who is making small changes in their lives for the benefit of the environment.
Remember that small steps make a difference. Park and stride! When COVID ends, we can carpool again! Thank you everyone! From Miss Brassil.
