The school would like to wish a Happy Saint Patrick’s Day to everybody in the school community. Pictured below include Matthew Monks, Kevin O’Donoghue, Wayne Williamson, Kai Hill, Owen Minihane, Karen Galvin, Eilish Hurley, Mary O’Driscoll, Una McNulty, Orla O’Sullivan, and Maura Cullinane, who were asked to organise a display for Skibbereen Community School for Saint Patrick’s Day and the annual Seachtain Na Gaeilge. No expense was spared with the decorations that were bought in the pound shop in the car park of Drinagh Co-Op.

The students did a great job in sourcing the materials and were justly rewarded with a treat in Field’s Coffee Shop where they were seen meeting the owner Ruth Field.

Organising the display was a mammoth task that involved assistance from the wider school community where particular mention must be given to the BAM staff and Ms Orla O’Sullivan’s Second and First Year classes. A big thank you to Wayne Dwyer, Sean Twomey, Daniel Cotter, Cindy and Matthew Cosgrove who gave up a lot of time to make the fabulous display.

 The wonderful array of colours can be seen at the entrance to the school and they have also set the mood for the great week of Irish speaking. Although Saint Patrick did a number of wonderful things, we think the best miracle he performed was giving us an annual day off school! Well done to all 'agus bain taitneamh as Lá Fhéile Pádraig'.
