Bring Your Grandparents To School Day

Pupils from the tiny two-teacher school in Kilrusheighter, Sligo, brought their grandparents to school. They didn't have to bring books or lunch, just stories from their own schooldays.

The Permission Slip...

As part of the celebration of our school’s 50th anniversary we would like to invite your grandparent(s) to come into the school on Tuesday, 5th June for a ‘trip down memory lane’.
