A Visit From Martin Byrne

We all enjoyed a wonderful visit from Martin Byrne on Monday 19th May. Martin was the first person from Roscrea to climb Mount Everest. He spent the day talking to us about his exciting experiences, showing us photographs and demonstrating how his equipment was used on the mountain. We all learned so much from him!

Visit from PDST facilitator

We all benefited greatly from our two visits recently from Dympna O’Byrne from the PDST. She worked with all classes on Comprehension Strategies and Narrative Writing.
