Miss Hughes’ 5th class did their own 2019 St. Patrick’s Day Parade!
We included St. Patrick in our history timeline in our classroom. “432: Tháinig Naomh Pádraigf go hÉirinn”. We also made badges for the parade. (We took photos of our timeline and St. Patrick’s Day badges). Then we discovered that there was no parade in Dundalk this year. So, we had our own parade during seachtain na gaeilge. We said the history timeline up as far as 432 when St. Patrick came to Ireland. Then a group in our class played the tin whistle and St. Patrick made an appearance on a quad (sponsored by Halford’s shop in Dundalk). The audience laughed and laughed!
