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.
