The girls of 2nd, 3rd and 4th class are armed with litter pickers, gloves, specially-designed hi-vis jackets, and bright green refuse sacks! Yes, they've registered for the Picker Pals programme this year, and have been taking home the litter picking packs, one pupil per week.

When the pack is returned to class, the pupils ask the 'Picker' all about their litter picking exploits.

We have found out this year, that plastic bottles are the most common items of rubbish found around Castlecomer.

We wonder, will this change with the introduction of the Deposit Return Scheme, and the Reverse Vending Machines?

We have been learning about this new recycling scheme, as part of the Picker Pals programme.

We have taken part in online zoom meetings/ classes and in quizes.

Stay tuned for more news!

Taking part in the Picker Pals online quiz (above), and opening the new Picker Pals pack, to great excitement (we got colouring books, too!)

Home School Community Liaison, Mrs Carmel Kenny, organised a special treat for pupils just before the Christmas holidays.

This was a Christmas cookie decoration workshop!

Check out the photos below, to see how well these cookies turned out.

We do hope they tasted as good as they look!
