Celebrations at Gaelscoil Longfoirt

Green Flag

Celebrations at Gaelscoil Longfoirt

Gaelscoil Longfoirt had a wonderful day on Friday, June 10 as they raised their 3rd Green Flag at their annual Bake Sale.

A real fair day atmosphere added to the fun eventful day.

There were activities to suit all from face painting, nail panting, hair stations, and make up tables to penalty kick outs, Match Attax games and skipping competitions.

The bring and buy stall was a great hit and the children showed great initiative and made popcorn, candy floss, bracelets etc. to sell on the day.

The effort and generosity of the parents was incredible with fabulous buns, cakes, brownies, tarts and other delicious treats on the day.

The stalls were packed with vegetables grown and picked by the children in the school garden and parents provided flowers, plants and vegetables grown at home.

Fair Ground games such as "Sponge Face", "Bucket Ball", "Darts", "Guess the Teddy`s name", "Guess how many sweets in the jar" filled the yard.

Balloon animals and swords filled the school yard with painted faces galore. All the stalls were run by the children and great initiative was shown.

The day was finished off on a high note as Gary Brady from Longford County Council came to help raise the school`s Green Flag. Gary remarked on how he always enjoys visiting the school and seeing the work and effort put into the Green Flag. Gabhaimid buíochas ó chroí leis na múinteoirí agus pobal uile na scoile as a n-iarrachtaí go léir.
