Today was a very special day for the pupils and staff at Leckaun National School. A parent entered the school in a competition to win a trip to Sligo on Ice for the whole school! What a day we all had.
Well done to all the children - they all followed the rules and safety precautions throughout.
Thank you again to staff at Sligo on Ice.
