Green Schools News This month we continued our work on the biodiversity theme as all classes planted Irish tomatoes with Aoife from Windy Ridge Garden Centre. We learned about how to care for these plants and got to take them home. We searched the school gardens and bug hotel for different types of insects too. We also participated in the National Spring Clean with each class assigned to different areas of Dalkey. Many passers-by stopped to praise the efforts of our school which shows the impact this project has on the community. Next month, we will participate in another national campaign: National Walk to School Week. We would love to see all classes make a big effort to walk to school or park and stride for the week beginning Monday 15th May as walking to school has so many benefits for the environment and for our own health and wellbeing.

Speech & Drama Exams: The Irish Board of Speech & Drama examiner complimented all pupils on the high standard this year. Congratulation to medal winners Gavin Pantony, Ross Byrne & Conor Brodrick. Well done to Kevin Roche, Colm Heylin, Turloch Egan Manson, Niccolo Mc Namara, Ben Kelly, Antoin Siejko, Dylan Owens, Donal Moylan, Conor Westbrook, Tom Hogan, Daniel Doyle, Milo Quinn, Rory O’Mahony, and Jack O’Doherty who all received Distinction.
