Parents Association Spring Clean 2023

Despite the rain, the Parents Association and students from Maryfield College were out in force celebrating World Earth Day by hosting its annual Spring Clean of the school’s grounds. It was a busy morning weeding, pruning, cutting back brambles, clearing moss, litter picking and planting new plants. A big thank you to all the parents, especially the students who volunteered, the school caretaker Alan Redmond and principal Dr O’Rourke.  A big shout out to Dublin City Council who provided us with bags, gloves and litter pickers and Tully Nurseries in Ballyboughal who supplied us with some planting.
