Junior and Senior Infant School Tour 2015

This year we went to Ballyglunin Glamping for our Junior/Senior Infant School Tour.  We all had a brilliant time! We took part in a Zumba class and we made caterpillars and turtles out of Jumping Clay.  After our lunch we were amazed by a magic show and some of us became magicians:-) Later on we were entertained with a puppet show and we ended our day by showing off our dance moves at the disco.  We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and were all fit for bed after it 😉
