Whole School Activities
Art from Waste
Every year we take part in the 'Art from Waste' Competition run by the County Council and Laois ICA. We love art and although this competition ties in with our Green School Programme, we would enter it even if we were not applying for a Green Flag! This year Junior and Senior infants made 'Candy House' like the house in Hansel and Gretel. 3rd Class won the overall prize in the competition with their entry called Sea-escape. The senior room made a relief collage of Cuffe's Castle. You can see a picture of this on the Cuffe's Castle page.
The prizes in this competition are fantastic and there is a wonderful ceremony in Áras an Chontae to present the prizes and celebrate. This was the icing on the cake for us this year!
