Spring Clean Up

 

St Paul’s TY students participate in Spring Clean 2017

sponsored by An Taisce

 

St Paul’s transition year students helped out in the national Spring Clean initiative which was held on Friday, 24th of March in Oughterard.

The group of students which included the Biodiversity class helped out the local tidy town’s volunteers in this Spring Clean effort. They cleaned planters, bins, the bottle bank, cleared weeds and rubbish from public carpark and removed ivy and moss off Church walls- all in one and a half hours!
