Ms. C. Rafferty's 5th class made their 1st visit to St. Olivers today. They were both excited and nervous. They settled in very well and made lots of new friends in St. Olivers. They completed a questionaire and learned lots about their new friends. They also performed a number of songs much to the delight of the residents and day care visitors in the hospital. Thanks to Petrina, Lisa, Anne & Kay for their help this morning. We are very grateful to the Dundalk Society for Older Persons & Underprivileged Children who have generously sponsored our project again this year.
