atest press release from Minister Simon Harris, issued on Thursday, November 11th 2021…
Wicklow Fine Gael Minister Simon Harris TD visited St Laurence’s National School in Greystones where he was questioned by 6th class students on a wide variety of topics.
Minister Harris said: “As a past pupil of St Laurence’s it is great to see how the school has grown and gone from strength to strength in recent years.
“I would particularly like to pay tribute to principal Carol Mooney who will retire at the end of this year and has developed the school greatly under her leadership. I have no doubt that Carol will continue to make an immense contribution in the area of education locally. I also want to congratulate the incoming principal Ann Marie Martin and wish her every success.
“The sixth class pupils showed a keen awareness of the big issues, whether it was climate change or the jobs, courses, careers and training they would like to avail of after they finish secondary school. They quizzed me on vaccines, the need for safe skate parks and amenities, and places in local secondary schools.
“I want to wish everyone in 6th class in St Laurence’s the very best for the year ahead.”
