Pupils at Ballycanew NS showed their support for Ukrainian people in their community by taking part in an initiative that aims to plant seeds of solidarity in their local area.
Pupils received and planted sunflower seeds, which are now flourishing and bringing a touch of colour and sunshine to their school. They happily showed off their planting progress to members of the Gorey-Kilmuckridge Municipal District when they paid a visit to the school grounds recently.
The seeds were sent to the school as part of a Gorey-Kilmuckridge Municipal District initiative, which aims to demonstrate support and solidarity to the Ukrainian families living in the local community. All of the schools in the district received the seeds. Pupils and teachers alike are now being invited to plant them and send photos of the flowers to Love Gorey to feature in their social media campaign. Through doing so, they aim to highlight the area’s support for the Ukrainian people, and also, the positive work being done by teachers and pupils alike all across the Gorey area.
