Winners at Discover Cork Heritage Award Ceremony

Ms. Rice’s 6th Class took 3rd prize in the Discover Cork Schools’ Heritage Project Competition.  Their project was a very thorough history of their 160 year old school and included a history of the famous Greenmount area.  The class carried out an interview with past pupil and former Lord Mayor, Toddy O’Sullivan, to find out what school was like in the past.  This is the second big win for Greenmount in this competition in recent years. 20150320_192808 WEB 2
