St. Colman’s National School have been invited to 2019 Cork Food Policy Council Sustainable Food Awards on Tuesday evening February 12th 2019 at St. Peter’s, North Main Street, Cork City. The CFPC believe there are many people who go that extra mile when it comes to sustainable food practices, who don’t get the recognition they deserve. This awards program is designed to recognise those people, acknowledge their good work and encourage others to follow suit.
Applicants were asked to illustrate their commitment to each of the CFPC’s five core values:
1. Health and wellbeing for all
2. A thriving local economy
3. Resilient, food-friendly communities
4 Lifelong learning & skills
5. A reduced environmental footprint
The application to this scheme under the “Schools” category was made possible through the hard work by School Garden, Green Schools, Active Flag Committees combined. An introduction on the night will be given by Dr Colin Sage, Chair of the Cork Food Policy Council and the Lord Mayor of Cork, Councillor Mick Flynn will present the 2019 Certificates of Recognition and Excellence. The pupils who will represent the school at the awards are Ciaran Crowley, Jonathan Clifford, Molly O’Shea, Leona McGrath, Kara Keeler and Lily Kent. Good luck to all!
Today, 13th June, saw parents get involved in some activities as part of our School’s Active Week. There was some skipping, some balloon popping, a water and egg and spoon race! Great fun was had by both parents and children. Thank you to all parents who took part and made the day a success! Thank you also to Ms Power, Ms Beecher and Ms Kearney for organising the activities. Well done everyone! Please click here for more photos
