The day was a huge success. All this could not have happened without a lot of work behind the scenes for which we thank the Creative Arts and Digital Learning Centre Committee who gave generously of their time:
Oisin Ryan & Conor Williams (6th Year), Michael McDonald & Dylan Hutchinson (5th Year), Mark Landers and William Boyle (4th Year), Thomas Kerr & Michael Lucey (3rd Year), Michael Whyte, Robert McNabb & Luca Haugh (2nd Year).
Thanks also to Mark McGrane and John Huggard (4th Year) who helped with the preparation.
Finally thanks to Ms Marrey and Ms Kelleher for their coordination of Literacy Day.
