Mrs McHugh, Chair of Governors welcomed the Partnership and took them on a short tour of the school. P6 Pupils at the school the showcased the Shared Education Projects that they were working with alongside their friends at Holy Rosary Primary School. They talked about developing friendships and their work was applauded by members of the Partnership. Both schools were delighted to receive a donation of $5 000 to buy books and science materials for their school. We trust that this is the start of a very meaningful friendship and relationship with the Irish American Partnership.
