Our school community was out in force yesterday, October 31st for our planned Daffodil Planting. The weather held up following heavy overnight rain as a large group of up to 25 adults together with a larger number of pupils and toddlers planted 1000 daffodils and 600 crocus bulbs to enhance our school grounds for next spring. Miraculously, the work was completed in exactly one hour, and was followed by refreshements for all.
We wish to extend our very sincere thanks to everyone who helped for this voluntary effort. Thanks also to Fr. Gerry and to Stradbally Tidy Towns Committee who donated the bulbs to us.
