What a busy day !

What a busy day our Nursery gang had today. We welcomed Rotarian Gabriel Byrne and presented him with the shoeboxes kindly donated by parents.  On behalf of the Newry Rotary club, Gabriel expressed his thanks  and appreciation to the school community for our ongoing support.  Then our little stars shone brightly during their nativity performance for a packed out hall, full of proud family members .  They were fantastic and each and everyone of them played their part so well.

Nursery trip to Newry Fire Station

We had a wonderful trip today to Newry Fire Station.  Our sincere thanks to the Firefighters who treated us so well,  our group were educated, engaged and entertained by the presentation.  We had a lot of aspiring firefighters on the way home. Special thanks to Brian Kirwan, Ben’s Dad who is stationed at the Newry fire department, we appreciate your help in facilitating the visit.
