School Sports Day
What a great day we had in Mary I this year for Sports Day. It was a great sight seeing 220 children and 40 adults heading off to go sack racing, penalty shooting, hoola hut making, 3 legged racing, handballing and much more. Many thanks to all our parents and teachers who worked so hard to make it such a super day. Well done to all the older kids who helped their younger teammates in the challenges.

Animal Magic, the wild animal rescue centre from Kilmallock, visited LSP on Wednesday 10th June. All classes had a wonderful time learning about wild animals and birds and how to protect them. The excitement was palpable as many got the chance to handle a variety of different animals including: barn owls, long eared owls, dragon lizards, rabbits and a boa constrictor!
Junior and Senior Infants had great fun seeing all of the animals.
