We had a wonderful day last Friday. Maria Walsh visited every class in our school and spent over an hour with the senior classes answering their questions about her role as an MEP and the work of the European Parliament.
Children in our senior classes will be taking part in the Blue Star Programme this year. The Blue Star Programme teaches primary school pupils about European cultures and the EU through creative activities and projects which complement the primary school curriculum.
We will welcome Maria Walsh MEP to the school on Friday, 15th November. The children will have the opportunity to find out more about the role of MEPs and the operations of the European Parliament.
Second class made the front page of the Western People. Thanks to Sinéad Mallee for taking the photo last Friday.
