It might have taken 5 years to “officially” open St Ultans School in Cherry Orchard, but it was worth waiting to have our wonderful President Mary McAleese officiate at the event, along with the Dublin Archbishop Diarmuid Martin.
In case you do not know anything about this spectacular and new concept school, do yourself a favour and take a look here:
The President enthralled her packed audience of VIPs, the staff and most particularly the students.
The students gave magnificent displays of dance, art, and a musical treat with orchestra and choir.
If a model in the provision of primary education is ever to be copied, this is the school. It is a model and educational concept of which we all should be proud.
