Hello & Welcome to our blog!
For the past few months 6th class have been working on a project called the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and for this programme they have decided to make their own Slime and Stress Balls. Tomorrow, 23rd March they will be selling the Slime/Stress Balls in the hall at home time. The Slime will be sold for €3 and the Stress Balls will be sold for €1.50. Please if your child would like to buy Slime or a Stress Ball, please bring in the money needed.
Thank you for your support.
