On Monday, 31st January 2022, St James’ National School, Durrus featured on RTE News2Day, the RTE children’s news and current affairs programme. The pupils did a feature on the Chinese New Year, which began on 1st February this year. This year is ‘The Year of the Tiger’.
Caroline Willoughby, classroom teacher at St James’s NS, writes:
The pupils dressed up in red and gold to celebrate the ‘year of the tiger’ and created and designed their own lanterns. They wrote their wishes for 2022 for the school wishing tree and also drew dragons. The children got an opportunity to sample some delicious Chinese cuisine. We ended the day with a dragon parade performed by the Junior classroom. It was a wonderful celebration and we were thrilled to be featured on the programme to showcase a flavour of what happens in St James’.
