ENNIS National School students are showing that they aren’t ‘knit-wits’ when it comes to getting ahead for Christmas. The school’s ‘Crafty Crew’ knitting club of third to sixth class students are creating knitted squares for their now annual Christmas tree project. For the past three years instead of pine needles have been using knitting needles to made a community Christmas tree. As part of the project hundreds of knitted squares made by the students, their families and friends, are sewn together to create the unique festive decoration.
They are now appealing to anybody who would like to get involved by making their very own patch for the tree to donate it to the project.
Ciara Harding from Ennis National School explains, “The children at Ennis National School are currently working on knitting squares for their annual Christmas Tree Project. Over the past three years we have combined our work at school with squares from parents ,grandparents and friends of Ennis National School to create a Community Christmas tree. 
In 2019 our completed project was displayed in St Columba’s Church and last year Insomnia in Tescos shopping centre were kind enough to allow us to place our display in their window. This year we are once again appealing to anyone who wishes to include a crochet or knitted patch on our tree, to leave is at Ennis National School Reception or to send it to Ms. Harding’s Class. Patches should by15cm by 15cm and preferably green, red or white, although we are happy to accept any colour.”
