"The best bit of the school tour for me was when I got to spray the hose. They showed us all the fire equipment. Ms. O’Reilly got to dress up in the fireman’s clothes!"
Kane (1st Class)

"The Fireman showed us around the fire station. He showed us how to rescue people. He pretended to rescue Ms. Timmins! Then we went to the playground. It was a fantastic school tour!"
James (1st Class)

"Last week we went to the National Aquatic Centre and Zipit in Dublin. The Aquatic Centre was so much fun! Zipit was challenging but we loved taking part in all the activities! It was great craic and one of the teachers went up in the zip line with us. There were five levels and Katriona, Alex and Ellie were the first ones to complete the course. We had pizza in Maximillian’s on the way home! It was the best school tour ever!"
