Saint Patrick made a very special visit to school today ahead of his feast day tomorrow.
Our glorious patron saint arrived to the sunshine in St Mary’s PS Dunsford in his chariot to visit the children this morning. The chariot was led by donkeys Luna and Denis from Kinedale farm in Ballynahinch and donkeys carried shamrock in baskets. St. Patrick told the children the story of St. Patrick and shamrock was blessed and distributed to children to bring home to their families.
We would like to thank Fr McCloskey and Orla from Tuesday’s Child, a charity that helps children in extreme hardship as part of their St. Patrick’s Day Appeal to raise funds for child boat refugees for organising today’s event. It was a great experience for the children and will live long in the memory of everyone.
