This week 6th class were kindly invited to Marine house to see how our old school has been transformed into a state of the art Hospitality college.

Brendan must have been looking after us because the heavy rainfall and thunder forecast for the morning never materialised and we walked up and down in lovely sunshine.

The school has had a complete face lift. Sinead’s office is now Bren’s bar with a beautiful mahogany custom made counter. Fran’s office is the seating area. Kate’s old junior infant room is now a bright and colourful canteen and kitchen. The old hall is a large open plan kitchen and Cathy old room is a 5 star bedroom. Mary Dee was very pleased with her old office which is now what can only be described as a cosy room with comfy chairs and a lovely bright aspect.

It was more than a little emotional for us walking back through the doors of our old school without our friend there to greet us. Donardas from 6th class expressed it perfectly in his recount of the trip to the rest of the school at assembly on Friday when he said ‘It was an exciting but sad visit’.
