Budding gardeners win in Conna

Wednesday, 10th July, 2019 4:57pm

There are some very talented little green fingers in Conna if this school is anything to go by!

The staff and pupils of St Catherines National School were crowned the overall winners at the recent Cork County Federation Muintir ná Tíre Pride in our Community School Garden Awards 2019.

The competition is in its seventh year and this year saw a record amount of entries.

Mayor of County of Cork Cllr Christopher O’Sullivan was highly impressed with the response to the school garden awards and encouraged everyone to get involved. He congratulated all the schools and said they were all winners and said he hoped next year’s competition would be even bigger and better.

Trevor Dineen of the Environment Directorate, Cork County Council was very impressed with the huge involvement from all the schools and congratulated all the schools on their huge contribution and the amount of work that was done by both students and pupils. The enthusiasm and high standard and quality shown from all the schools proved to the judges that the project continues to be a huge success.

The competition involves each school developing and planning a garden in their own way. Both adults and students work together to decide what type of garden they want to create. The competition encourages all students to get involved in working in the garden and the competition also promotes sustainability and biodiversity.
