If anyone can Clashmore N.S. can!
Waterford’s Community Can Challenge project ran by ‘Rexam’ a leading global beverage can maker based in Waterford ran a competition to describe a day in the life of a can. Emer Power a teacher in Clashmore National School, along with the school’s green-school committee made a short movie entitled ‘Canny’s Dream’. The children created an interesting and engaging video to promote recycling, resulting in a fun alternative to the usual recycling message. Their entry won out of all the schools in Waterford the prize being €1,500 in equipment for the school and €250 to be split between the green school committee.
Yes We Can! – The school’s winning entry was then entered in to the Rexam Sector Community Can Challenge. The sector covers Europe and Asia – and a total of 16 Rexam plants from across Europe and Asia submitted entries. Clashmore N.S won the innovation award and received €6,500 along with a day trip to see the plant in Waterford in action. A fantastic day was had by all!
