This is the story of how the schools connected, written by Larry the Leprechaun:
Dia dhiabh a pháistí,
Is mise Larry the legend leprechaun. Tá mé anseo i Durham le Mr. O’ Riordan agus tá a lán nuacht agam!
I arrived today in the city of Durham which is near Newcastle and I have met teachers from other countries. They are all eager to learn about St.Augustine’s and Clontuskert. I have been telling them about all the interesting things we do. This evening I am going to show them some pictures of Clontuskert.
Inniu chonaicme an ‘Angel of the North’. This is a large and famous sculpture near Newcastle perhaps you can look it up? I also saw Durham Cathedral which was built in 1100’s
Slán go foill, beidh mé arais

Dia dhiabh a pháistí,
Larry anseo! An bhfuil nuacht agat? An bhfuil ag déanamh a lán obair?
Last night I showed people from different countries pictures of our school and of the parish. They thought Clontuskert was very beautiful and that we had a great school. They were really impressed with your singing of Óró sé rap and your school news letter. People in France, Sweden, Estonia and many more are going to show your paper to their children
Today we got into groups to do projects together. The picture below shows our group – there are schools from Spain, France, Estonia, Latvia, Sweden and two from England. That’s me at the front of the group!
Slán libh go fóil
Beidh mé arais

Unfortunately I only passed the Angel of the North on the bus so I did not get a picture of it. I have not met Jedward but Bing Bong you will be happy to know I have a nice bed!
I have met teachers from all over Europe, besides the group I am working with there are teachers from Holland, Macedonia, Finland, Germany, Belgium and Cyprus.
The weather is cold but dry. Great work on the ‘Angel of the North’!
