Port of Cork Chairman John Mullins reminded all participating classes that as well as receiving a certificate of participation, every class will be treated to a high speed, fun filled boat trip around Cork Harbour, compliments of the Port of Cork. As an extra special prize, best overall winners Glasheen Boys National School will go on board a cruise liner in May for a tour of the ship.

The Port of Cork Schools Initiative aims to educate 5th class primary school children not only about the Port of Cork but most importantly about Cork Harbour, its rich maritime history and the trade and business connections. The initiative is run annually and this year is the twelfth year of the Port of Cork Schools Initiative.

All projects are currently on display at the Cobh Maritime Building, located on the platform at Cobh Railway Station. Cobh Maritime Building is open to the public daily from 10am to 4pm.
