Nenagh College Community Walk raises money for Special Summer Camp.
On Friday last 31st March over 300 members of the Nenagh College community gathered at the school. Their purpose was two – fold: to host a community event as part of attaining the Active School Flag and to raise money for Nenagh Special Summer Camp.
The response from the school’s partners including Knigh United soccer team, Kildangan hurling and camogie, Eire Óg, Nenagh Badminton, Nenagh Scouts, Nenagh Badminton , students ,staff, parents and representatives of the ETB Head Office, was staggering and more than €1,300 was raised for a local worthy cause.
Liam Heffernan, PE teacher at Nenagh College, who is coordinating the effort to attain the Active School Flag for the school, remarked on the volume of participants who, despite the odd shower, enjoyed the walk on the late spring evening.
The school will be holding a number of activities throughout this week which will include almost all staff and students. The school will have these activities validated by an independent adjudicator, after which, it is hoped, they will become a Blue Flag, Active School.
