Grandparents' Day in Scoil Mhuire 2/2/11

As part of Catholic School’s Week (Jan 31st-Feb 4th ) Ms O’ Hanlon’s First class hosted a Grandparents
 Day on Wednesday. We were delighted to welcome grandparents to Scoil Mhuire. We had a special
 service in the Hall with Fr O Leary followed by a visit to the 1st class room where grandparents shared 
their memories of school life...and learned how to use an Interactive Whiteboard! The Parent Association provided a  welcome cup of tea  to round off the visit.
