Ryan Tubridy visits JFK

What an exciting Monday we had in JFK with Ryan Tubridy visiting 2nd and 3rd class children. He was greeted by Ms O Sullivan and a group of boys from the senior classes holding a wonderful welcome banner, created especially for his visit. There was lots of fun in Ms Fitzgerald's room with Ryan chatting to the children and answering their questions. Ryan was presented with a JFK hat and a jar of old time sweets from Mrs Duffy's sweet shop. To top it all off, Ryan awarded a homework pass to every boy in the school! JFK was honoured to have been chosen for this event and it was really enjoyed by all!
