Busy Class from Colaiste Pobail Osrai

 

Congratulations to all the pupils from Colaiste Pobail Osrai for all their hard work and their spring clean of the pedestrian and cycle way serving the Fairways, Beech Lawns, the Orchard and Pococke.

On 27th April,  16 first year students, with their teacher Caoimhin, picked up litter along the Fairways walk way. They were participating in Neat Streets, an anti litter programme for Secondary Schools. After 90 minutes 18 bags of rubbish and a trolley had been removed. Great credit is due to the friendly and enthusiastic students of Colaiste Pobail Osrai for the smashing job they did.

Sub aqua Club go to all depths to Keep Kilkenny Beautiful

Kilkenny  Sub aqua Club  have taken our spring clean campaign  one step further ! ….. with under water cleaning.  Items washed down the river Nore  in times of river floods get caught at the bottom of the river and can be a danger to swimmers, boating  and to wildlife. Unfortunately there are also  items such as bicycles, bottles, traffic cones and  shopping trolleys  found.  The divers locate the  items to be removed which are then marked with buoys.  They are  then raised to boats and   brought for authorised disposal.
