6th Class were delighted to welcome Lt. Killian Toll on Wednesday. Killian is a member of the Irish Air Corps and delivered a very interesting presentation on what it is like to be in the Irish Air Corps, the training that was involved and the work that they do. The children even got to try on some of The Air Corps equipment with many feeling inspired for their future afterwards! Padraig

Frása na Seachtaine:

“Cad a rinne tú ar an deireadh seachtaine? Chuaigh mé go dtí an chlós súgartha/ pictiúrlann/ teach mo chara.” – “What did you do at the weekend. I went to the playground/cinema/my friend’s house.”

Le meas
