MEP Sean Kelly visits Lisnagry

On Wednesday 21st May MEP Sean Kelly received a warm welcome when he visited our school as part of the bluestar programme. He discussed his role as an MEP with 6th class and discussed the foundation of the E.U. The children really enjoyed asking Mr. Kelly questions. He was overwhelmed by the amount of work the children had completed with their teachers on a variety of E.U. countries.  He answered lots of questions prepared by our pupils. He even showed us his voting card for the European Union Parliament.He was treated to a handshake by all the pupils in the school to celebrate “Europe Day” and to acknowledge the diversity and solidarity that exists between us all as EU citizens.This handshake symbolises the day that then French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman extended the hand of friendship to old enemy Germany, to put war behind them and to forge a peaceful continent. Many thanks to Mr. Kelly for taking the time to visit us. Mile buiochas!

Below are some photos from his visit.
