We would like to invite you to join in the fun next Friday 15th March.
Join us between 8:30 and 9a.m. for an Irish breakfast in the school hall. Some of our students will be serving Irish tea, scones, brown bread and other baked goods for parents to enjoy!

Classes will be performing some Irish songs, poems and dances for parents in the hall between 9 and 10a.m.
Please come and celebrate with us! Bígí ann!
