Congratulations and thank you to everyone involved in maintaining our beautiful school garden throughout the last school year! Cork County Council recently acknowledged the beauty, the effort and the high standards involved by awarding Scoil Mhuire NS the Gold Medal at their annual Muintir na Tíre Schools Garden Competition! This is the fifth consecutive year that we have won a prize and it’s testament to the efforts of so many people but in particular Mrs. O’Sullivan, all the teachers and staff, the pupils and the parents who help out during our regular Meitheals and also those who are currently helping to maintain it through these summer months. As the saying goes ‘Gardening requires lots of water; most of it in the form of perspiration’ and certainly without all your help, it wouldn’t be possible!
The funds raised at our annual Garden Fete in June help with any costs incurred in maintaining and progressing our Garden. This year the children through their innovative stalls and marketing entrepreneurship, a whopping €840.50 was raised and a lot of fun was had as can be seen from some of the following photos!
