Windgap community celebrated the opening of the extension to Scoil San Nicolas and the opening of the community playground on Sunday 10th May. It was a very vibrant and energetic day for the young and old.
At first there was a mass outside the school where the school extension and playground were blessed and baptised. The weather was misty with a cold breeze.
After the mass all the pupils of Windgap N.S received a red or white balloon from Julie O’ Brien. Everyone then progressed over to the new school extension where the oldest pupil of the school, Eoin O’ Brien aged 13, and the youngest pupil in the school, Abby Vaughan aged 4, cut the ribbon to officially open the extension to the school. Each child then let off his/her balloon.
We then proceeded to the playground where Ciara O’Shea, daughter of Marie O’Shea programme leader, and James Kelly, the son of Barbara Power programme leader, cut the ribbon to officially open the playground. The rest of this ecstatic day included youngsters playing in the playground and food and drink in the hall.
These two new facilities will be a great joy to the Windgap community and will be enjoyed by the young and old for many years to come!
