Wonderfully Welcoming Open Day 2018 at Cloghoula N.S.

On Wednesday, 25th April 2018 Cloghoula N.S. held a superbly welcoming Open Day which was so enjoyed by its new Entrants (three of whom we feature here – Donnacha, Evan and Kayden).  It was truly inspiring to note how the established Pupils at the school were so wonderfully caring, helpful and supportive to the new Entrants.  The entire Staff created an uplifting cheerful atmosphere for the Entrants who were experiencing Primary Education for their very first time.  Here we meet some of the new Entrants enthusiastically participating in the many creative activities.  We share a selection of images to give an insight into the educational happening.   Click on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
