THE HARD WORK of students and teachers at Presentation Primary School on Sexton Street to improve the well being of their school community has been recognised with a prestigious award. 

During the school year, students held a ‘Mindful May’ where they practiced mindfulness and hosted a spring-clean of the school. The school also staged a production of the musical Annie, which starred students from junior infants up to sixth class.

As a result of their hard work, the school was recently awarded the Healthy Ireland-Health Promoting Schools’ (HPS) Flag, one of the first schools in Limerick to achieve this award.

“We were all delighted after a busy year working together to improve the wellbeing of our school community through projects such as a spring clean up, Mindful May, making Buddy Benches, friendship week, coffee evenings for teachers, assembly songs and a multicultural day that we finally were awarded our Health Promoting Schools flag,” teacher Lisa Kearney said.
