Curracloe National School held its annual Presentation Day last Thursday (June 9), with first aiders to swimmers among those receiving certificates.

Mick Garry presented 5th & 6th Class with First Aid Certs as they have completed a full 10-week course and are now qualified 'First Aiders'.

And 3rd to 6th Classes, who completed their 10-week swimming lessons at Wexford Swimming Pool, received their certs.

A Student Council was set up this year for 5th & 6th Class. It has proved to be a great success and the children have worked very hard and achieved a lot for the school.

Some of their endeavours have included four picnic benches for the yard, class 'hoodies' for sixth class, raising money for Curracloe Tidy Village and setting up a School Stationery Shop.

The profits from the shop will be used for sports equipment.

Members of the Council include Caoimhe Parker, Keelan Angood, Shonagh Tobin, Danielle O'Leary, Ben Monahan, Tom Garry, Andrew Bolger, Barry Cloake, Niall Power and Adam Murphy.
