Wow! What an AMAZING day! Thank you SO much to EVERYONE who came to celebrate it with us. We hope you were all as impressed with the new wing as we were!
This morning, we held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to open the new wing. The event was attended by the children moving into the new wing, along with some staff members, some Board members, some Parents' Association members and some parents who regularly volunteer in our school. The event was live-streamed into the other classes in the school and recorded.
After Eldon's and Aoife's classes had had a chance to settle in to their new surroundings, each of the other classes had a turn to take a tour of the building.
Later, there was a children only disco for the older children, followed by a disco for the infants with their parents.
After all the dancing had been done and everybody had gone home, members of the school staff, Parents' Association and Board of Management had a well-earned break in the new meeting room.
There were bubbles and nibbles, and a chance to reflect on the busy times just gone and the busy times still to come! Roll on December and the opening of our new class for children with ASD.
