Green Flag Raised! On Friday June 20th there was great excitement as the children looked forward to raising their hard earned An Taisce Green Flag. The two year intensive project led by Ms Corrigan is a credit to the school. The children had been focusing on waste management and have reduced their litter and waste by significant amounts.
The Bishop Ferran Glenfield kindly attended our end of year gathering. The senior class shared a story about the origins of Ballyconnell in drama, followed by a presentation by the whole school on their work for the Green Flag. Pupil Josh Magee in his final days in the school was thrilled to be given the honour of raising the An Taisce Green Flag
The day also saw the launch of the school's newly launched website designed by Wayne Curry.
