Dungarvan was chosen to represent Ireland in this year’s Entente Florale competition, along with Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny.
As St Mary’s Primary School has proven to be a long term and progressive Green School, we were asked to be part of the competition.
As part of the schedule of visits on the day a panel of judges from 8 European countries visited the school.
The judges enjoyed a tour of our sensory and vegetable gardens. Some of our pupils, teachers and parents gave up time from their summer holidays to explain the work and projects ongoing in the school. Well done to all.
A huge thank you to Jonathan, our caretaker, for all his hard work, Ella Ryan and all the other staff from the Council for their guidance and support while preparing for the visit.
