School Band members say thank you to Ms. Lenehan
Earlier today (Thursday 26th), Ms. Lenehan organised a band recital in the courtyard.  Before the band performed, children in Ms. Dillon's second class and Ms. Mc Ardle's fifth class performed pieces they had learned during the year for the Féile Ceoil.  The band then played a selection of lovely pieces.  Afterwards, band members and sixth class pupils, Aisling Fagan and Carla Cooney, presented a bouquet of flowers to Ms. Lenehan as a token of the band's appreciation of Ms. Lenehan's work.  Ms. Lenehan is retiring this year but we are delighted that she will return to take the school band next year.  To view photos from today's performances, click HERE.
