'2nd class Ms. Buckley 2012-13'

Fruity Friday

We were really good all week so we had a fruity treat.

We made fruit kebabs.

Maebh, Jasmin and Líadh helped to wash, cut and serve the fruit. 2nd class helped to eat the fruit.
We tasted pineapples, strawberries, plums, peaches, bananas and grapes.
We had a terrific time tasting fruit and making colourful patterns.
We can’t wait to taste all the different food at Macroom Food Festival at the weekend.

Green Flag


Green Flag Awards

Our school was awarded the Green flag on Thursday the 16th May at a ceremony in the Moran Convention Centre in Cork. Congratulations to Ms Browne and the Green Schools Committee for all their work to get the Green flag.

On the 16th of March Mrs. Browne, Bríd, myself and Jane went to the Silver Springs Hotel to accept our schools first green flag.

We left at 11.30am and when we arrived we received our complimentary bags. in the bag was a postcard, a tattoo and a bookmark promoting the Green Schools website.

We went upstairs to the function room. This is where the presentation was held. There was a noticeboard with projects, posters and newspaper articles. There was a green flag hanging up with a gigantic version of the bookmark. 

By 2 pm it was time for food! We were starving. We were all seated and our menu was delicious. The choice was:

Chicken wrapped in bacon with a side of vegetables


Lasagne with side salad and chips


Baileys cheesecake with ice- cream and cream

We all chose the chicken, it was divine. The cheesecake was just heaven!

The ceremony began after the food. There was a man in a globe costume. It was very well presented. We took photographs with him. Examples of how much litter and waste was saved by each category. Litter and waste was the weight of 69 blue whales!Energy was to the moon and back 17 times!

It was a great experience. I was delighted to be chosen to represent the school.
