I am delighted to announce that Monkstown Park Junior School will receive another green flag in May, the "Water Flag." This will be our 3rd green flag along with Energy, Litter and Waste. I would like to congratulate all the children who took part in the green school committee and the water science expo.They did their school proud. The two assessors were highly complimentary of all the children, commenting on their high level of knowledge on the subject of water and their ability to answer all questions with ease there as there was plenty of tough questions asked. The assessors also gave praise on all the incredible water science experiments and how enthusiastic the children were about demonstrating and describing them and the volume of hard work that went into them. Lastly, thank you to all the parents for all your hard work too.

All the boys and girls from 2nd to 6th were treated to a visit from Mr. Fitzmaurice and five 3rd year students from CBC Monkstown College. Sam Montayne, Oscar Lawlor Plazas, Ewan Watson, Daniel McGovern and Peter Shaw gave us an excellent presentation of Irish History, focusing on the 1916 Rising. We learnt a huge amount and were very impressed with their presenting skills. Lovely to see some past junior school pupils among them.
