A Special Visit by The Rose of Tralee January 2014

On Thursday the 30th of January Haley O'Sullivan, the 2013 Rose of Tralee winner, came to visit our school. Haley is from Texas and was visiting Ireland with her mother. She has connections with Monaghan as that is where her boyfriend comes from. Haley's grandfather was from Cork and her grandmother's family had connections with Longford.
Mrs Rooney began the ceremonies by welcoming Hayley to our school and thanked her for taking the time to visit us. Then our instrumental group entertained Hayley in the PE hall with three traditional pieces of music. Next the children had a question and answer session with her. Mrs Rooney wrote a poem for Haley and some children read it to her. After that Hayley was presented with a bunch of flowers and a picture of The Rose of Tralee symbol which was drawn by Arpitha. Finally some children sang the Cup Song while others did the actions.
It was a very special day for our school and all the staff and children really enjoyed it.
