On 23rd April we took part in An Taisce Spring Clean. Over forty boys from 2nd – 6th class took part. The boys had a great time and did fantastic work. Teachers were overwhelmed at the effort everyone made. The children cleaned up all the litter in the driveway, the car park, and the school yards and the adjoining path. In addition, they also tidied up along the kerbs and swept up any leaves left lying around. All the hard work under the heat of the sun led to the children working up a thirst. Luckily, there were some lovely cool drinks awaiting everyone when the clean – up was over. The Green Flag Committee would like to express huge thanks to all the boys and staff in St. Malachy’s B.N.S. and Louth County Council for their continued support.

Boys from 2nd – 6th took part in the school’s Anti – Litter Poster Competition after the Spring Clean. There were some really excellent entries and the judges had a tough decision to make. There was a prize for the winner from each class and one overall winner.
The overall winner was Dennis from Mr Wynne’s 6th class.
Our Green Code
