In the past few months St.Andrew's equestrian team have been competing in the Interschools Showjumping event.
This competition took place over six different dates, and then on the last day all the points were added up to see the placing. Overall in the league we came fifth out of the twelve other teams competing. There was four on each team and we had two teams. The St. Andrew's students were Kate Horgan, Hannah Keogh, Charlotte Dillon, Ellie Nolan, Emily Heather, David Dowse and Eabha Toole. There was also an individual competition and others took part in that including Grace Toole, Ellie Rowland , Pheobe Horgan and Kate Horgan who came second overall. Altogether the team and the individuals did very well, all the hard work certainly paid off.

My School Is called St.Andrews National School.My school is a Green School.There are 7 of us on the Green School committee.We make posters to make people aware of what Green Schools is all about.We make signs for our bins saying recyclable and non-recyclable. Recyclable means that the material in the packaging can be used over and over again. It is important for everyone to be aware to recycle,It helps our planet, and as children it helps our future.
Some of the things the Green School committee have done are: 1: We recycled old clothes for other people to wear instead of buying new clothes. 2: After our lunches we try as hard as we can to bring home some of our recycleables.
Any new pupils that come into our school can learn from us. It is only in the last few years that our school has turned into a Green School. I have just learned from my mam that a lot of schools around the country are involved in the Green School project!
