Representatives from Newry and Mourne Council Ms Danielle Begley ,Biodiversity Officer and Ms Elaine Hart and our Eco Committee got green fingered and planted some native Irish bluebells, wild garlic and wood anemone in the school grounds. This will be an interesting project for the girls as they keep a keen eye on the plants and look forward to seeing them in full bloom.
Congratulations to our Eco-Committee who raised a total of £300.75 at their recent cake sale. The proceeds of the sale have been split between two very worthy causes. The girls would like to use some of the money raised towards buying seeds and plants for developing the school greenhouse and butterfly garden. A cheque was also presented today to student Lauren Hogg on behalf of Multiple Sclerosis Newry. For more information on the charity, visit the website here www.multiplesclerosisnewry.co.uk. The Eco-Committee would once again like to thank Lauren for her beautifully designed cupcakes. They were all sold in record time...
Well done everyone.
Our Eco-Committee recently ran a competition that involved designing a Christmas card with an eco friendly theme. We are delighted to announce the winner - Year 9 student Emma McAleenan. Emma's design has now been made into a Christmas card which is now on sale in St Mary's. Everyone will have the chance to purchase some of Emma's cards at the St Mary's stall at Newry Christmas Fair on Sunday 15th December.
Well done Emma...what a wonderful achievement
