Deputy Harris said, “I was delighted to be invited back to my alma matter to take part in their annual Europe Day celebration, which recognises the cultural diversity of Europe, and the unity we share. It was wonderful to see the school doing so well, and leading the way I encouraging students to engage with Europe.”
“One thing that had changed since I was in school was the number of students taking part in the Comenius Programme, which lets students from across Europe come to Ireland on a study exchange.”
“It was inspiring to see students from St Laurence’s engage so thoroughly with the idea of Europe and I commend the Principal of the school, its staff and parents for making this celebration possible.”
