Coláiste Muire, Cobh
Two projects the school took part in during the year.
1. The Park Road Centre
- We visited the Day Care Centre twice a week
- We took part in activities such as knitting, karaoke and arts and crafts
- The Centre was set up adjacent to Cobh Hospital as a place for the elderly of the Great Island to visit.
2. Cleaning up the town
- We focussed on stewardship
- We made a big difference to the look of the town, especially the church car park and the waterfront
- We felt that it changed Cobh for the better
Students from Coláiste Muire sow plants along the waterfront in Cobh.
