The Crocus Project.


Students from our Transition Year German class were busy planting crocus bulbs recently.  These students are participating in The Crocus Project - an Irish initiative whereby Holocaust Education Trust Ireland provides yellow Crocus bulbs to school pupils to plant in memory of the 1.5 million Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust.  The yellow flowers recall the yellow Stars of David that the Jews were forced to wear under Nazi rule.

Ms. Maher and the German class wish to acknowledge all the assistance provided by  Mr. Vincent O’Dwyer in preparing the soil prior to the planting of the bulbs.  We look forward now to watching the bulbs grow and the flowers blossom over the coming months.
