I Want to be a Policeman When I Grow Up!

Midterm is the perfect time to catch up on some ‘lost’ stories: Earlier this term, St. Conleth’s After and Pre-School Czar Cecilia welcomed back An Garda Síochána to St. Conleth’s and the Juniors got so excited a few over-eager youngsters had to be locked up in the mobile jail cell- to the youngsters’ delight and their teachers’ momentary relief!  

All was well in the end though, as many of the students got a chance to wear the police hat and and jacket and everyone boarded the state-of-the-art vehicle (short ‘e’ when you pronounce that!).  In all seriousness, the visiting Gardaí were top-class professionals who managed to be both personable with the kids and purposeful in their presentation.  You could see the awe in the eyes of the boys and girls as the officers explained their jobs and delivered some safety tips.  And it was reassuring to hear once again children talking about growing up to be a Garda… take that Google coders!
