The day the lambs came to school

A big thank you to Seamus McPhillips for bringing his two pet lambs to school today. The children really enjoyed petting them and feeding them. It was a fitting end to the Farm theme which the Infants have been learning about in Aistear.

A visit from the firefighters!

We were delighted to welcome three firefighters to our school last Wednesday. The children had the opportunity to ask the firemen questions about their job. They even had a chance to hop on board the fire engine.

A big thank you to John, Merrvyn and Ian for taking the time to visit our school!
