Spring Clean 2023

This week the boys and girls in our school completed their annual spring clean.

We set out around our local village and collected any rubbish we came across.

Knockainey once again this year has proven to be a very tidy and well kept
community.  This is a testament to the wider community and also the tidy towns committee, all of who clearly have great pride in their little village.

Many thanks to all the pupils, staff and especially to our Green School committee for organising this initiative.

Míle buíochas,
The Green School Committee.
