Pupils involved are Sorcha Hughes, Conleth Burns, Niamh McVeigh, Anna Duncan, Toraigh Watson and Clodagh Boylan.
In order raise awareness of the importance of one of the world’s most prestigious sporting events, Giro d’Italia, the pupils have used a cycling theme for #Piggybank to highlight the economic and social benefits that such a major event can bring to the Moyle District Council area.
With Giro-fever in the air, Moyle District Council is encouraging all business to get creative and add a splash of pink to their windows to turn them into eye-catching Giro d’Italia themed displays.
