Ar an 11ú Márta bhí an céilí bliantúil againn sa scoil. Mar aon leis na blianta a tháinig roimhe tugadh cuireadh do na scoláirí ó na ranna eile teacht chun blais bhig a fháil de thraidisiún agus de chultúr na hÉireann. Bhí sé mar aidhm na hócáide go mbeadh deis ag na scoláirí nach Éireannacha iad cur amach éigin a bheith acu ar cheol agus rince na hÉireann. Ar an gcaoi sin bheadh muid in ann cur leis an eolas Eorpach atá acu agus spéis, b’fhéidir a mhúscailt i dtraidisiúin tíortha eile. Bhí thart ar 300 scoláire ó gach roinn sa scoil i láthair le haghaidh na hócáide agus bhain siad an sult as an gceol agus an rince.
(Thank you to the Irish people for sharing the celebration of St Patrick’s day with all of us. It was a great and fun way of getting all of us together as we don’t meet on many occasions. At the end of the dance I looked around the room and everybody was smiling, clapping and cheering which shows that we all had a great time. Now we know a little more about ireland’s traditions and music.)
