Newly crowned Kerry Rose, Mary Hickey, visited Shrone NS yesterday to raise our Green Flag and our JEP flag. She also unveiled our LEAF award and Discover Primary Science and Maths Award of Excellence.
Mary was presented with some gifts from the pupils, such as a tomato plant representing the Green School, a Sea the Facts book to represent the JEP flag and a handmade hama bead token in a rose design.
The Senior Room had written speeches about each award and spoke very well in front of the audience of parents and the school community.
The girls serenaded the Rose with the Rose of Tralee tune on the tin whistles.
Everybody was treated to icecream afterwards and Mary, the Kerry Rose, signed autographs, posed for photos and chatted to everybody. We all had a great day!
We wish Mary all the best in the Rose of Tralee.
