We are delighted to announce that the pupils collected 97kg of used batteries over the past number of months as part of the WEEE Ireland Pledge. The children are not only helping the environment but also supporting the Laura Lynn Foundation. WEEE Ireland will now donate €94 to the Laura Lynn Foundation on behalf of Cloontuskert NS. Well done to all and thank you for your support!
Fifth and Sixth class enjoyed a very successful 'showcase day' for the Junior Entrepreneur Programme. The aim was to sell 100 of their product, 'Fairy Smiles'. We are delighted to inform you that we far exceeded 100 and have orders to make more! Huge congratulations to our Young Entrepreneurs. They all worked very hard and learned a lot about business, organisation, managing money and teamwork during the Junior Entrepreneur Journey, which we started last December. Fifth and Sixth class have decided to put their 'profit' towards a school trip before the end of June.
Today our Green School Committee had a very busy morning carrying out a wildlife survey on a nearby site for the Tidy Towns association. The pupils enjoyed discovering and identifying key species and habitats in our locality.
Their next task will be to write up a report on all their findings to present to the Tidy Towns committee!
