We were delighted to accept an invitation to join our friends in De la Salle Beneavin last week to participate in their annual Arts Week. Students from both schools took part in a Zumba drumming workshop and then performed in a fantastic fashion on stage during lunch break for the whole school!
As well as getting a tour of the school, chatting to their newly appointed Lasallian Prefects and enjoying a lovely lunch together we were joined by Brother Damien Kellegher as we gifted DLS Beneavin with a cherry blossom from Dundalk for their school grounds.
“Today on this special occasion we remember and give thanks for our Founder John Baptist de la Salle.
We also give thanks for the special links that exist within our Lasallian community and we celebrate the opportunity to meet and learn from each other today in Beneavin College.
This tree symbolises the growth of the relationship between our two schools which hopefully, like this tree will grow strong and live long.”
Mohamed Beshr – student DLS Dundalk
We look forward to the boys in Beneavin visiting us next year to hopefully repeat what was both an educational and enjoyable experience.
