Millstreet Parents Association Pancake Competition

Millstreet Parents Association would like to thank all the talented children who sent in entries from both the Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S.  The children sent in a lot of fantastic pictures of how they like to have their Pancakes, lots of wonderful designs and colours, I am told it made the decision of who the winner was such a hard job.  Here are the pictures, some great talent here I think you’ll agree.

Also if you would like to follow the Millstreet Parents Association on Facebook the link is https://www.facebook.com/Millstreet-Parents-Association-104178005023702

AND THE PANCAKE BAKE OFF WINNER IS….

Millstreet Parents Association

Millstreet Parents Association has a new page on Facebook for both Presentation N.S. and Scoil Mhuire B.N.S. in Millstreet.  It will be a place where they advertise upcoming fundraising events and communicate with parents and the community.

https://www.facebook.com/Millstreet-Parents-Association-104178005023702

Sadly, the last year the Association hasn’t been able to put on any Quiz, Church Gate Collection or Disco to help with the fundraising, but did hold a Movie night, Halloween colouring competition also gave gifts for the First Holy Communion children.  So hopefully newer and safer ways can be found to fundraise and support the schools.

A new Competition is going up on the Facebook page this week ‘Pancake Bake Off’ for the children of the school’s with a super prize.

Here is a reminder of some of the previous good work the Parents Assn has done in Millstreet.

Green Flag for Rathcoole N.S.

St. Brendans N.S., Rathcoole are delighted with the news this week that they have been awarded their 4th Green Flag for Sustainable Travel.

The school has been working for the past two years towards this award, but unfortunately their final event had to be cancelled when schools closed. Instead, pupils from Rathcoole got on their bikes or went on a hike over the past few weeks and headed out to photograph their picturesque “2km Zone” nestled between the foothills of Mushera and the banks of the Blackwater.
Here is the beautiful video they submitted to the Green Schools “Hidden Places” project:

The team at Green-Schools headquarters were very impressed with the application, and extend their thanks to everyone in the school.  The Green-Schools committee and the whole school community deserve a huge amount of credit for their efforts – well done on your 4th Green Flag!
