Last week at a special ceremony in Dublin, Mrs Lawless and 3 pupils from the Green Schools Committee, were presented with our 4th Green Flag – for Travel.  Mrs Lawless thanked all the pupils, their parents and all the school staff for working so hard on this award over the last two years.  The Green School Committee also made a special presentation of a travel flag to Miss Lundy for promoting cycling in the school and encouraging a new generation of active and safe cyclists at St Francis NS.

Mrs Lawless also announced that we have just been awarded the Active Schools Flag.  Again, she thanked the pupils, their parents and all the school staff for encouraging such a physically active and healthy school community.  Particular thanks to Miss Carolan and Miss Kellegher for coaching the school Gaelic teams and Sarah and Gary for coaching the school basketball teams.
