This year the Transition Year class and teachers of Presentation Secondary School Castleisland were delighted to collaborate with the local Tidy Towns committee to help brighten up Church Street by painting nine ESB boxes along the street.
The Tidy Towns committee and Mary Walsh brought the idea to the attention of the Art class in Presentation Secondary who in turn brought it to the Transition Year Class.
The class group members were very excited to begin designing their ESB boxes in small groups and to start painting them.
Nine Boxes along the Street
The nine boxes begin at Church Street Bridge outside Garvey’s SuperValu and run up along the street.
There are two outside the school, two residences, St. Vincent de Paul, Dr. Fleming’s, Pius Fleming’s Veterinary practice and East 73rd Clothing Shop.
“We would like to thank all the businesses and building owners involved for participating in this project by allowing the EBS box outside their building to be painted,” said teacher Annette Leen on behalf of all at The Pres.
