Dylan, Abby and Harrison from the Green-Schools Committee travelled to Radisson Blu Hotel in Athlone on the 10th of May to receive our 2nd flag on behalf of the children and staff of Scoil Bhríde. Congratulations to all the boys and girls for their hard work and achievement. We are looking forward to celebrating at the flag raising ceremony in June.
On Thursday, the 5th of May the children in 6th Class went on a trip to Dublin to visit the Irish Aid Centre and the National Art Gallery. The children had a great time in the Irish Aid Centre learning songs in Swahili, trying on traditional Africana clothes and playing African instruments. The children were very lucky to see the newly opened Leonardo Da Vinci exhibition in the Art Gallery. The children looked at and discussed the ten drawings from the Royal Collection. Thanks to all the children, parents and teachers who were involved in making this day such a success.
