Visit of Minister Mary White to Holy Family BNS

Holy Family BNS Principal Mrs. Wall thanked the Minister, Father Liam , invited guests, Green Schools Committee, Staff, and boys for attending  the presentation of the John Gormley Environmental Award for Schools & Colleges. This award is a great achievement as over 1000 schools and colleges took part in this competition and it is the result of many years work. Holy Family has successfully received three green flags and are pending word on it’s 4th flag. Minister White complimented the lads on having such a fantastic school and doing so much excellent “Green” work. Minister Mary White also gave the boys off homework, which was very well received! It was a lovely visit with singing from the Junior Infants and a very warm welcome from everyone –especially the Green schools committee. The Minister was given a tour of all the wonderful environmental activities such as the vegetable garden, the outdoor classroom, the bird camera, the bug hotel, the bicycle shelter, the recycling facilities, the water collection barrels and the schools two wonderful gardens. It was a great day and everyone was very proud of a fantastic school and Carlow’s very own Minister.
