Great news arrived towards the end of last week with the announcement of two awards for our school.
Firstly, congratulations to our Green Flag Committee and their leader and co-ordinator Mrs. Kerrisk on the decision by An Taisce to award St. Oliver’s its tenth Green Flag – no other school in the country has been awarded more!!!!
The award focused on studies of travel patterns to school and sustainable travel. Well done to all the classes, staff and families , it was a real team effort. The Flag will be awarded at a ceremony in Cork later in the year.
Also congratulations are in order for our Yellow Flag Diversity Committee on securing the coveted Yellow Flag award. This award recognises a Whole-School Approach to caring inclusion and celebrating diversity. Well done to Ms. Terry as leader and co-ordinator of the programme. The flag will be awarded at a ceremony in Dublin later in the year.
Both awards reflect wonderful collaboration and teamwork. Sincere thanks to all involved and to our leaders – the children of both committees and their co-ordinators Ms. Kerrisk and Ms. Terry.
We are very proud of these awards and of the work it took to secure them. Each class in the school has contributed to each achievement in some way and therefore deserve great credit.
Finally it is important to note the energy and vitality of the student committees involved in co-ordinating our efforts. They are leaders who will continue to lead wherever they go.
Best Wises for the week ahead.
