Guest Speakers at Green Schools Water Day

On Friday the 27th of November, our school was asked by ‘An Taisce’ to be guest speakers at the Green Schools Water Day. Some of our Green Schools Committee made a presentation, informing other schools of what C.N.S. completed in order to be awarded their Water Flag. Well done Amelia, J.P., Michael and Shane on delivering a fantastic presentation. You all did C.N.S. proud. 🙂

Poster for xmas jumper

On Friday 11th December we will be taking part in a Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Tuam Cancer Care.
 Everyone will be invited to wear their silliest, sparkliest or cosiest Christmas woollies and make a donation of €2.
If a child doesn’t have a festive sweater, don’t worry – it’s easy to decorate a plain jumper with tinsel, baubles or homemade snowflakes.
We’re looking forward to a fun day for an excellent cause!
Merry Christmas Jumper Day:-)!!
