Pupils from Ballindaggin National School have been acknowledged by a local business for their work in promoting environmental awareness.

The pupils, who call themselves the Wildflower Girls, are one of a number of groups in the school who set about completing projects and tasks all aimed at promoting good practice within their school and local community in terms of enhancing nature, protecting the environment, and ensuring that people adopt more beneficial approaches to getting rid of waste.

In acknowledgement of their work the Wildflower Girls were presented, in Smyth's Hardware, Enniscorthy, with a range of gardening gear to help them carry out their ongoing school project environmental work.

The pupils were delighted to accept the items from the store and promised it will be put to very good use.

The Wildflower Girls include: Maeve Tobin, Eva Nolan, Jodi Pender, Aoife O'Gorman and Saoirse Delaney.
