All in the school were thrilled to hear the news that we had two winners in the 'Viking Colouring Competition' to mark Wexford's inaugural 'Viking Fire Festival' which takes place today (Saturday 28th September 2019) on Wexford Quay.

Kyle Gordon (from Ms. Murphy's 2nd Class) won a Family Pass for 2 Adults and 3 Children to the Irish National Heritage Park at Ferrycarrig for his work while Katie Dryburgh (from Ms. Tierney's 5th Class) went one better when she won a 'Viking Tour' of the Heritage Park for the WHOLE CLASS!!!!

Both Kyle and Katie can be presented with their prizes later this evening on the Quay between 5pm and 6pm.

Well done to both and thanks to all the teachers and children who took part.

Later today the quayside will be transformed into a real-life Viking Village where visitors can enjoy storytelling, fire events, a Viking market, coin striking, a big dig, Viking music and even the chance to participate in some slave trading! This free event finishes this evening with a Viking parade on the Wexford Quayside with a spectacular fire show by renowned group Inferno.
