TY stu­dents get down and dirty in big clean up

Bray People - - News -

A GROUP of tran­si­tion year stu­dents from St. Ger­ard’s in Bray con­tin­ued to help keep En­niskerry neat and tidy last week, as they help out with the vil­lage’s Tidy Towns group for a few days as part of their com­mu­nity ser­vice project.

The ini­tia­tive was overseen and as­sisted by Tidy Towns com­mit­tee mem­bers Marie Power and Jill Toal, who co-or­di­nated the ef­forts of the civic-minded pupils.

They rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in to their set of tasks, in­clud­ing weed­ing, col­lect­ing lit­ter, sweep­ing and plant­ing.

The stu­dents car­ried out their com­mu­nity ser­vice as part of the an­nual tran­si­tion year pro­gramme, which in­cludes the com­ple­tion of a place­ment that must con­trib­ute to the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Stu­dents get the choice be­tween work­ing for char­i­ties, nurs­ing homes and other projects. This par­tic­u­lar group chose to help out the tidy towns com­mit­tee, who said that they are very grate­ful for the ef­fort that was put in to the town by the teenagers.
