Minister Katherine Zappone

We were delighted to welcome Minister for Children, Dr. Katherine Zappone to St. Maelruain’s Church of Ireland School on Friday, 2nd February 2018. Dr. Zappone was taken on a tour of all five classrooms and spoke with all of the children. Some of the children were so excited to see her and ask her lots of interesting questions, while others were a little awe-struck.

Dr. Zappone was in turn introduced to all staff members and took great interest in all of the activities that the children have been doing, including taking part in the upcoming Special Olympic Ireland Games promotional video.

At the end of her visit, Dr. Zappone was presented with a pot of white heather and an open invitation to return. We look forward to seeing her again soon.
