VANDALISM IN SCHOOL
We have had incidents of vandalism taking place at the school. The window in the PE shed at the back of the school was broken. The seats in the new School Garden were knocked over and some of the shrubs and flowers were damaged. A tree behind the goals on the school pitch was uprooted and will have to be replaced. Some graffiti have been put on the wall of the school/community car park. This is a relatively new development in our school and village and needs to be eradicated. We ask the community to be vigilant. GardaÃ have been informed.
