Our school celebrated through poetry and dance. Our assembly hall was full of displays of ‘Optimism Shields’ from each tutor class. There were Ceiliúradh Ceist signs in all of the native languages of the students in our school displayed on our noticeboards. The Ceiliúradh Ceist mile was completed by some of our year groups.
