Saoirse’s letter after visit to an Áras
Thank you for your wonderful email. It was an amazing day. It was definitely our best day in Third Class, maybe it will even be the best day the boys will ever have in primary school. It was super. We are so privileged to have you accompany us. It is one for the history books for Ballyroan Boys’ School.
We are amazed that you remember every President and this is the first time you got to meet Uachtaran na hEireann. These boys are so lucky to meet him when they are 9 and 10 years old. Imagine all the presidents they will get to see in their lifetimes.
They boys absolutely loved the whole day but in particular they loved meeting the President. Such an honour to have our picture taken with President Higgins and Brod. They will treasure it. We are going to display in on the walls in Ballyroan. You will be famous Florence.
The boys have been busy doing their Daily Mile, recovering from all the cookies and fizzy drinks in the Aras and doing their standardized national reading tests this week. We will write our reports soon and sent them onto you with lots of drawings and pictures.
We look forward to looking at your blog and getting emails from you.
Keep a day free in mid/end of June to visit us up in Ballyroan Boys. You will have to come in an see they boys before they get all grown up and go to fourth class.
Enjoy the sunny weather. We hope you are not too tired after your exciting week.
Saoirse and all in boys in Third Class
