St Mary’s secured another award today in the Solstice Theatre as part of the Pride of Place competition. Mr Dale Threadwell, aided by his assistant, Dustin the Turkey, presided over the ceremony. This time, our gardening initiatives were rewarded. The herb garden got a special mention and as did the vegetables which are thriving this weather. We received a cash prize of €200 and a lovely framed certificate to add to our collection. Ms Patricia McDonnell who has been a valuable member of our Green Flag Committee since the start and some girls from the Green Flag Committee were there to receive the reward. Mrs Molloy must be congratulated for her great work in the school garden resulting in this great achievement. Well done Mrs Molloy and the girls from Mrs Hoey’s class who worked in the garden this year.
