The school community were delighted to welcome the visiting delegation from Scituate, Massachusetts recently. Many municipal and charitable organisations from their town were represented in the group who were so friendly and positive. The group were given a tour of the school before the official signing between Skibbereen Community School and Lester J. Gates Middle School. The twinning will involve the development of cultural links between the two towns which will culminate with student exchanges. Many thanks to our students who provided music for the special occasion, thanks to the canteen staff for the refreshments and to the BAM staff for the room layout.
