TY students get down and dirty in big clean up
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.
