Excitement is building up in the Preparatory School for our Christmas Fair on this Sunday.
There has been a great reaction so far with 36 Stalls booked in from individuals outside the school, and together with our own Novelty Stalls, it should be a great occasion. It is our first major fundraiser for the Zambia Immersion Project, of which two of our teachers will travel out with the Secondary School.
If you are free between 12pm and 5pm on this Sunday, it would be great to see you!! Even Santa will be paying a visit!

Third and Fourth Classes had the opportunity to visit Dáil Éireann, at the kind invitation of Minister Dara Murphy TD. Mr Murphy spoke to the boys at length about his job and answered any questions that they had. The boys then had an opportunity to visit the Dáil Chamber, the Seanad and have a tour of Leinster House.
Earlier that morning, the boys visited the Wax Museum and had an entertaining tour of the models on display, with the Horror Chamber the most popular.
Our thanks to the parents who accompanied Mr. Lynch with the group on the day, Mrs. Néidín Fitzpatrick, Mr. Pat Lowry and Mr. Duncan O’Regan.
