“A huge thank you to everyone who supported our recent clothing collection & coffee morning. It was a wonderfully enjoyable morning and a great success raising a total of €1500. Many thanks again to all for your support.
We would also like to thank KBC bank for supporting Derrinagree N.S. with their Bright Ideas fund. KBC awarded Derrinagree N.S. €300 funding for maths and science resources to assist the school through the ‘Green-Schools’ programme. The programme will teach primary school pupils about the importance of conserving and protecting our natural resources. The ‘Green Schools’ programme is an international environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges long-term, whole school action for the environment. Through interactive engagement with environmental issues and improving their local community, the pupils learn the difference small changes can make and feel empowered to believe they can make a difference.” We thank Irene O’Mahony for the text above and for the pictures below.
