The children in Bandonbridge NS came together in two groups this morning to sing the EU Anthem to mark 50 of Ireland's membership of the EU. The younger children hummed along and added some percussion. The older children held the EU flag and the Irish flag. Mr. Peter Stobart, Director of Music in St. Fin Barre's Cathedral arrived at an opportune time and accompanied the performance on the school piano. The children have been learning about the EU and why we are a member country. Annually, 5th class participate in the Big Friendly Guide to the European Union. We like to learn about the other EU countries too because many of the children in Bandonbridge NS come from member states.
