Everyone in Blasket had a wonderful day celebrating for St Patrick's day.
During the week we made concertina style snakes in Art and for Home Economics we walked to Dunnes and bought different coloured jelly – green, white and orange. We all dressed up and joined the whole school in the church for a special blessing of the shamrocks from Fr Sean. We paraded back to school and joined in a wonderful afternoon of Irish music and dance. We danced to traditional music, played by students from DKIT and staff members. We enjoyed watching a solo by a great Irish dancer who is also the sister of one of our students – she was very proud.
