Having recently celebrated its annual garden day, Brittas Bay National School now invites one and all to its inaugural Family Fun Day in the grounds of the school on Sunday, 24th June 2018.
The garden day which is always a huge success saw the school inviting parents and family into grounds to show off its garden which looked fantastic – especially with the great new polytunnel.
Parents were delighted to see the fruits (& veg!) of the labour that has been going on all year. There was an abundance of potatoes, scallions, beetroot and lots of beautifully fragrant herbs growing and being cared for by the very knowledgeable kids from Juniors to 6th Class – all under the watchful and encouraging care of the school gardener, Wendy Nairn.
For those who didn’t make it to Garden Day, the school is opening it’s gates to welcome one and all along to the very first Family Fun Day which takes place on Sunday, 24th June in the school grounds. There will be plenty for all to enjoy including live music, bouncy castle, face-painting, rock painting, storytelling in the enchanted forest with Bridge Street Books, tug-o-war, home-produce stalls, bric-a-brac stalls, and a BBQ , as well as raffles with tonnes of fantastic prizes.
Commenting on the up-coming event, Eileen Byrne, Principal of the school said, “We are thrilled to be able to invite everyone to our great school. We’re so proud of the school and all that we achieve, and we’re delighted to be able to show it off. This year we were awarded the ‘Communal Garden Award’ at the Wicklow County Council Environmental Awards and with the proceeds we were able to buy a polytunnel and expand the range of plants and produce we can teach the children about – and now we can show that off to everyone at the Family Fun Day too.”
Brittas Bay Family Fun Day takes place on Sunday, 24th June from 12pm – 4pm in the grounds of Brittas Bay National School and entry costs just €5 per family. Parking is free and all are welcome – it promises to be a great day out.
