Teachers in Caherleaheen National School and the CBS primary school took on the Ice Bucket Challenge after Holy Family nominated them earlier this week.

“Some of the teachers have done it twice already so they weren’t too happy when I told them they had to do it again!” said Caherleaheen National School Principal, Dónal O’Connor. was reliably informed that the teachers at Caherleaheen reserved the biggest bucket of icy water for Principal O’Connor.

The Principal nominated Flemby National School and Blennerville Primary School to do the challenge.

Meanwhile over in CBS Primary School, the teachers decided they would be dumping the water over themselves while all decked out in green and gold.
