On Friday 6th December, the children from 2nd Class visited the Newport Shepherds in Derradda, They saw an exhibition of sheep herding from Alan and Paul, and learned how sheepdogs help the farmers and how they are trained. They also got to meet the friendly sheepdog puppies and hold them.
The children really enjoyed their visit and we would like to thank Alan and Paul for their warm welcome.
Huge Congratulations to FOUR of our pupils who are winners in the Honeybee Festival Art Competition. The competition was open to ALL local schools so it is a great result for the school and for the pupils!
The winning entries will be on display at the festival in Scoil Phadraig tomorrow.
