Cong NS visits McGraths Limestone

Local News

Exploring the world around us is an essential part of education and on Tuesday 13th June we were delighted to welcome the 5th and 6th class pupils of Cong National School to take a bus tour around the quarry, followed by a visit to our office to learn more about what we do.

Before their visit, the pupils had completed projects in school about the quarry, encompassing a variety of topics including Geology, History, Environmentalism and Machinery, with a mix of text, photos, and some wonderful drawings. We were so impressed by the quality of the work and the time they spent researching their projects – They truly are a talented bunch!!

This visit allowed us to highlight our commitment to environmental sustainability and responsible quarrying practices. By involving the students and sharing our knowledge, we hoped to instil in them a sense of responsibility towards the natural world and inspire them to contribute positively to their own communities.

Thanks to all the students who worked so hard on the projects, we hope you enjoyed your visit!
