The Official Opening of our Junior Yard with Special Guest : Brian Cody

Brian Cody and Miss Deasy both acknowledged the work done fundraising for the resurfacing of the yard. They thanked all involved for all their hard work and dedication.
Dylan cut the ribbon with the help of his dad Tomas and Brian. Deborah’s Garden was then officially opened. Deborah Phelan was a very active member of our Parents’ Council. Sadly she passed away in July 2018. The garden will be a reminder to us all of what a wonderful person she was, sadly missed by her family and friends in The Pres.

 

Boys and girls, come and have fun in Deborah’s Garden.
Ms Deasy announced the winner of the Golden Ticket.
We all sang Circle of Friends.
Brian and the boys-future Kilkenny hurlers we hope!

After all that excitement, there was a wonderful cake.
Some members of our amazing Parents’ Council.
