GREEN FLAG PRESENTED!

The Green Flag was presented at a ceremony in Banbridge Civic Building on Thursday 18 June 2009.  This was a very proud occasion for Mrs. Minnis and the Eco-Committee as well as the whole school community.

Well done to everyone who made this achievement possible.

Drumadonnell Primary School has a very active Eco Committee.  The work of the Committee is coordinated by Mrs. Minnis.  Over the past five years much work has been carried out and the school has now been awarded the Green Flag.
