PUPILS at Derryquay NS had a special visitor on Friday when they welcomed Sean Kelly MEP to the classroom.

Mr Kelly was visiting as part of the Blue Star Programme which is being undertaken by pupils.

The Blue Star Programme is an education initiative for primary school students across Ireland. The idea of the programme is to foster better understanding and knowledge of Europe and how it affects the lives of Irish citizens among Irish primary pupils through classroom projects and activities.

The Kilcummin native was treated to a presentation of the pupils’ knowledge of some EU countries and young musicians performed Ode To Joy which is the European Union’s anthem.

Mr Kelly then fielded a number of questions ranging from his favourite EU country (Italy) to how much he earns (€92,000 a year). He also spoke of how Brexit was a big mistake for Britain and confirmed what his favourite sport is (give a wild guess!). It was a hugely enjoyable visit for both the schoolchildren and Sean Kelly.
