Thank You to our Guest of Honour
Mrs Noreen Minihan was the guest of honour to raise our 2nd green schools flag, this one is for energy. This project was organised by Mary Ronan (teacher).
Pupils performed the “Wild West Symphony” which they composed themselves under the weekly tutelage of our music teacher Tonya Ley.
Photo Booth Fun
On the 11th of May my friend Brian Ronan and I represented our school with Mary (junior classes teacher) and Claire (SNA) at the Greenschools flag presentation in the Radisson Blue Hotel in Cork with Lisavard NS and Kilcoe NS.
When we arrived I nearly gasped with surprise, the building was so impressive when we entered. I was astounded at the sheer size of the building.
We entered a big room where we were given a bag, a pencil case and a badge and were told to line up to take pictures in Greenschools photo booths. Afterwards we sat down and listened to some extremely interesting speeches and finally sat down to eat.
And lastly this is a quote from Claire the SNA.
“I really enjoyed the speeches, they were very interesting. The photo booths were good fun. I am exceptionally proud of Scoil Náisiúnta Rae na Scríne for all the work and effort they undertook in achieving their second Greenschools flag.”

In Search of a Whale
Calvin Jones came to Reenascreena School for five days. He showed us all the different types of birds, flowers and trees. First we went walking around the Warren and saw a Minky Whale and a Basking Shark ( they are the second biggest whale in the world). Another day we climbed up Carrigfadda Hill and saw lots of flowers, clovers, birds and bird boxes .Lastly we went for a walk up Dan`s Lane beside our school. There were loads of chaffinches and other birds. We had a lot of fun with Calvin exploring our own locality.
“The peregrine falcon dives at speeds of 200km an hour!” said Ross. We are lucky to live in West Cork.
