Tourism officer Maura Hickey and Mayor of Kilkenny Martin Brett were special guests at St Brigid’s NS in Kells last Wednesday for the launch of a new pamphlet produced by the students.

Children in third to sixth class took part in the Junior Entrepreneur Programme, for which they had to form a business, source/ produce a product and then market it. With the help of principal Josie Molloy, they produced a pamphlet called Kells By Kids.

Suitable for children and adults, it has information on the history and amenities in the area. It is now to be sold to the public.
