BIRR's Irish language playschool, Noinini Beaga enjoyed a wonderful afternoon celebrating the official opening of its new classroom last week.
Children, parents and extended family joined the staff and members of the non for profit playschool's board of management to mark the occasion on Friday last. Speaking at the event, Eimear Ni Ogain welcomed everyone to the celebration before Cllr John Carroll, Chairperson of the Board of Management, noted it was 'fantastic to see what the Naionra had grown into'.
According to Cllr Carroll, the Irish language playschool originally started out with eight pupils but now had over thirty children attending. 'This is a great thing for the Irish language in Birr and is what we originally wanted when we came together, which was to promote the Irish language. I think that it's been well promoted now when we have this many young children in the school.'
The Chairman continued that it wouldn't have 'flourished as it has without the help of the teachers that we have had'. 'Today's official opening is to get everyone together and also to say good to the children, who are moving on in a month's time and going to big school. I want to also thank you all for placing your faith in the Naionra.'
The school's two youngest girls, Lucie Bennett Bergin and Robyn King did the honours and cut the ribbon to officially mark the opening of the new classroom.
