Bantry Bay Port Company has announced Kealkill National School as the winner of ‘Best Overall Project’ in its 2016 primary schools competition.
Local 5th class primary schools were invited to take part and submit a project based on the theme of ‘A Day in the Life of a Cruise Liner Visiting Bantry Bay’.
John Mullins, Chairman of Bantry Bay Port Company, said: ‘Kealkill National School’s project was very creative and visual. The standard was very high among the schools that participated; however, Kealkill National School came up with a very clever way of highlighting the tourist attractions and places to visit for cruise passengers visiting the area. Their project was interactive and fun and we are delighted to announce them as overall winners’.
Kealkill’s pupils won a boat trip to Garnish Island and a kayaking trip along the Bantry Blueway, which gave them a great opportunity to appreciate the bay!
