At the start of the year, Piercestown N.S. completed step 1 on the road to becoming an Active School by registering their interest. Step 2 involves convening a committee. As with the Green School Committee, this committee will be comprised of teachers, children and parents. Such is the interest in the Active Committee that Ms. Walsh has designed an application form for all interested parties from 4th-6th class to complete. The deadline for the applications is this coming Friday 12th December.
Keep an eye on the blog to see who the successful applicants are.
Similar to the Green School Committee, we require the presence of two parents on the Active Committee also. If you are interested in assisting us on our journey towards becoming an officially recognised Active School please contact Ms. Walsh or Siobhán on 0539158854 in the coming day or email the school on firstname.lastname@example.org

Best of luck to all applicants. Watch this space for the committee to be announced before the Christmas break. The first meeting of the Active School Committee will take place early in the New Year.
