We had a lovely end to a very busy week with the return of Mayo Star and Engineering Ireland ambassador Tom Parsons to our school.

Tom gave a wonderful presentation about engineering and how it touches and make a difference to all aspects of our lives.

Tom is a wonderful role model and imparted great advice to all the children. Tom spoke of the importance of the key skills of problem solving, team work, appreciation of each others talents and hard work.

He enjoyed learning of the great work that is ongoing in our classrooms before participating in various engineering challenges with our students.

It was a pleasure to welcome Tom back to us again. As always he was very generous with his time,. We thank Tom sincerely for his visit and in particular his interest in meeting all our students. Míle buíochas Tom.

Finally, a very special word of thanks to all our students for all their hard work in preparation for todays event and in particular to Ms.Ruane and Mr Clarke who organised this special afternoon. It was as was mentioned a lovely way to conclude our week.
