Green School Photography Competition

Our school has been taking part in the Green Schools Programme for several years and it has made a significant difference to recycling , saving energy and conserving water.
Scoil Nioclais is currently working on the Green Schools Flag for Biodiversity.To raise awareness of our plant and animal life, we are holding a Photography Competition. The theme is ‘Biodiversity .  This is a broad theme so it can be interpreted in your own artistic way ! All pupils are welcome to enter. There is a separate competition for parents to enter their own photograph if they wish.
Please place your entry in an envelope or plastic pocket . Label it with your  or your child’s  name , class level, teacher’s name and the title of the picture. The closing date for entries is Monday 3rd Oct. The winners will be announced at Codháil.
