We are also truly grateful to all those who attended the event (and for those who supported it in other ways) and would like to especially thank Marc Blackett and Jim Heylin (Parents Association) for their incredible efforts while organising the event this year.

We hope to do it all over again next year!

Visit to Dáil Éireann

Posted by Daithí de Paor. No Comments

Interesting if not Successful Trip to Dáil.

Sixth class attended Dail Éireann yesterday to witness Minister of State Ciarán Cannon’s reply to Deputy John Halligan. According to the Minister of State there are in fact two building lists one being built and another which the DES has not decided to build but might build. We are unfortunately on the latter. The full reply can be accessed here.

The pupils were hosted by John Halligan TD who walked them around the building and also posing for a photograph and getting them each a drink. The trip had begun at 6:30 for everyone up from Tramore. We went on to visit the Natural History Museum and had a tour of the National Art Gallery. The trip was sponsored by the Parents Association.
