It’s all go­ing on in Ard­fert NS as Christ­mas time draws near

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS - By FER­GUS DEN­NEHY

THERE’S never a dull mo­ment at Ard­fert NS, that’s for sure, with the school this past week cel­e­brat­ing the suc­cess of two of its lat­est projects.

The first of these suc­cesses came in the form of the school’s an­nual ‘Christ­mas Shoe Box Ap­peal’ which saw the staff and stu­dents col­lect over 130 boxes of toys and other fun items, which are now set to be do­nated to Team HOPE for Chil­dren in East­ern Europe and Africa.

Never one to rest on their lau­rels too much, the school was back in the spot­light soon af­ter when the fifth class cel­e­brated the screen­ing of their play and film in the Helix in Dublin.

The play, en­ti­tled ‘Goose­berry Fair’, was writ­ten and di­rected en­tirely by the pupils in the class, all of whom were de­lighted when it was an­nounced that they would all be head­ing up to the big city to see their mas­ter­piece in all of its glory.

With a few weeks still to go un­til Christ­mas, watch this space for more Ard­fert NS news and cel­e­bra­tions!
