Adopt a patch

St Oliver Plunkett's NS school is working in tandem with Balrothery Community Council and working to make Balrothery Village an even better place to live. The Green School Committee under the direction of Ms O Mahony have adopted a patch in the village. This picture shows them cleaning an area across from the roundabout.

On Friday the 22nd of April they will clean outside the graveyard area as they take part in the National Spring Clean.

Well done children and Ms O Mahony.adopt a patch

The children and parents of Balrothery NS are truly creative. There were some fantastic designs of Christmas ornaments on show in the school porch. Here is just a sample of what is on show. The children used recycled items to make an ornament. Some of them could be sold for hard cash!sammy
