On the 15th of September we celebrated the announcement of another national winner, this time in Ireland. Over 100 Water Explorers and their teachers descended upon the Axis Theatre in Ballymun buzzing with excitment.
They held a 'Dragon's Den' style competition where each school presented and highlighted some of their best Water Explorer achievements. The presentations were followed by a whole range of activities including a smoothie bike, pop-up photobooth and a make your own medal stand.
Everybodys succeces were celebrated as all the finalist teams tucked into their lunch and recieved their Water Explorer goody bag.
Alan Duffy-HSBC CEO had some lovely words to say about each group but finally Blakestown Community School were announced as the winners with Scoil Bhríde Rathcormac coming a very close second.
Irelands National Broadcaster RTÉ stopped by to interview some of the Water Explorers who were aired on the news2day programme on the 17th September.
Congatulations Blakestown and good luck in the International competition!
