En­tries of very high stan­dard

Bray People - - Viewfrom Thestreet -

THE Schools En­vi­ron­men­tal Art Com­pe­ti­tion re­sults were re­vealed at a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion cer­e­mony in the county build­ings af­ter the judges had to cast their eye over more en­trants than any per­vi­ous year.

Wick­low Cathaoir­leach, Derek Mitchell praised every­one for their in­volve­ment and voiced his sat­is­fac­tion that most of the en­trants con­cen­trated on the Coun­cil’s two main prob­lems, that of lit­ter and pol­lu­tion.

While prais­ing Wick­low’s stand­ing in the Green Schools Pro­gramme, with over 90 per cent of schools par­tic­i­pat­ing, he still of­fered a plea to schools not al­ready in­volved.

‘I would like to take this op­por­tu­nity to ap­peal to the 10 per cent of schools in the county who have not as yet joined the pro­gramme to con­tact our en­v­i­ron- men­tal aware­ness of­fi­cer Moira Byrne who will make her­self and her staff avail­able to help and en­cour­age any school to en­ter the pro­gramme.’

County Man­ager Ed­die Sheehy also briefly spoke, fo­cus­ing most of his at­ten­tion on a new pro­gramme called Green Homes.

‘In Wick­low seven schools, each of which have al­ready been awarded four green flags are join­ing the Green Home Pro­gramme.

Schools that com­plete the new pro­gramme will have their green flags re­newed af­ter two years, as well as gain­ing the new green home flag.

‘House­hold­ers, pos­si­bly with a bit of ‘pester power’ from younger mem­bers of the fam­ily will be en­cour­aged to reg­is­ter for the pro­gramme on­line at greenhomes.ie’ The win­ners of the de­sign a logo com­pe­ti­tion were: Rob­bie Jack­son, Kil­te­gan Na­tional School; Ethan Lan­grell, Kil­te­gan Na­tional School; Shaina Sut­ton, Pow­er­scourt Na­tional School; Naomi O’Neill, Scoil Muire Realt na Mara, Brit­tas Bay; Leo Mick­lem, Pow­er­scourt and Lilly Peachey, Pow­er­scourt Na­tional School.
