School Activities


World Book Day

The students and teachers had a great day celebrating World book Day this year. The children from 1st and 4th classes walked down to Waterstones. They used their world book day vouchers to buy books. There was also a story teller there who read them a story. They had a great time. 5th class and Junior Infants went reading together. They really enjoyed reading Mr. Men books. All the classes and some of the teachers enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters from books.
