here were lunchtime queues around the schoolyard today up at Temple Carrig.
And sure, how could there not be, with the great smell of sizzling sausage filling every available nostril?
The fact that each mighty bratwürste was just €2 a pop helped somewhat, as did the fact that the school’s transition year German students were putting on the grill for local rehabilitation charity Tiglin.
Also on offer was frishche Brezen (that’s freshly-baked pretzels to you), with the students and their teachers, Frau Ross and Frau Andrews, keen to thank nearby Lidl Greystones – and especially their very helpful manager, Eva – for the very generous donations of these Germanic goodies.
The transition year students also baked traditional Lebkuchen Herzen (gingerbread hearts), just so everyone had a little something for afters.
Throw in some oompla-loopma music to mark this Oktoberfest fundraiser, and it’s hardly surprising that the students raised an incredible €600 on the day.
Still – sei der Heilige!
Said Frau Andrews, “Work experience, community action and volunteering are all integral to the TY experience, so it was great to see this all come together today.”
