Tree Planting Letter

Dear Parents,                                                                                                               February 6th 2018


There will be no school tomorrow Wednesday, February 7th as the staff will be attending inservice on the New Primary Language Curriculum.


Please note  children will be on  Mid-Term Break next week, Monday February 12th to Friday 16th.


Book Fair will take place from Monday Feb 19th to Friday 23rd. Assistance from parents will be necessary for this event. Please text your availability to Parents’ Council mobile 087 4038525.


We are delighted to announce that the Athenry Tidy Towns Committee has once again invited the children of Scoil Chroí Naofa to partake in tree planting on Saturday 10th February at 9am. This year’s project is part of the “Plant a Million Trees in One Day” campaign which will take place all over Ireland on February 10th. It is worth noting that Athenry will be planting the most amount of trees, a staggering 9,000 to include species such as oak, holly, alder, scots pine and guilder rose. We have been assigned an area on the Northern Ring Road between the Ballygurraun & Carnaun Roads.


The Tidy Towns Committee request:

  • Children and parents wear high-visibility vests or jackets, wellies & gloves
  • Parents accompany the children at all times
  • Every family brings a spade
  • Cars to park along the left stretch of Northern Ring Road between Carnaun & Tuam roads
  • Parents to  use spades to loosen the soil & the children can then plant the saplings, which will take approx. 1 hour.


This is a really special occasion that everyone will enjoy. It would be fantastic if as many of you as possible could attend. Please complete the slip below & return it to the class teacher ASAP so that Tidy Towns committee can have an idea of numbers.



Yours Sincerely           _____________________________  Teresa Neylon, Principal
