We are just finishing up for the Summer here in Athlone Mixed National School and what a year it has been! One event that took place this year will definitely be one the children will remember for many years to come. Last week, we had the great opportunity to go to the RDS to present our ‘Time To Bake’ project along with hundreds of other hopeful primary school children. Some schools were awarded special trophies for winning top prize categories and we all received Gold medals for taking part and a plaque for our school. From listening to famous entrepreneurs speaking, to watching David Meade the mentalist put on a fantastic show, to eating chips and crepes and overall having a fantastic day mixing with other children from Fifth and Sixth class; we really had the best day. Well done to the children from the Senior room for all their hard work and for earning our school the famous ‘JEP’ flag. And finally, to the Sixth Class pupils: YOU WILL BE MISSED!
