Thursday 13th September, 2018 was INDEPENDENCE DAY for our new Junior Infants. We are all very proud of the girls and boys. They were so grown up and in the morning, they walked into their classrooms all by themselves. It was also their first full school day.
The day ended with some memorable surprises organised by our principal, Mrs. Costello. Each child went home with a balloon. Thank you to Tara, Carol and Helena who worked hard to make sure sixty balloons were ready for distribution.
The infants were amazed to find a Dale Farm ice cream van in the school yard. Thank you to Ms. Carwood and her sister Amanda, a past pupil of the school for organising this. The Infants enjoyed their ice creams.
However the fun did not stop there. All students from Senior Infants to Sixth came out to the yard where they too were treated to an ice cream. The photos in this slide show are of students from Senior Infants to Sixth enjoying their ice creams. Many, many thanks to all those involved in this great day. Thank you to Ms. Curley for taking the photos and recording this happy day.
