Foley Primary School grotto

It’s the most wonderful time of year – and Foley Primary School was a magical place to be last weekend.

Santa Claus took up residence in the Master’s House at the school on Friday right through until Sunday, December 1-3.

Over 500 people visited the school during the course of the these three special days.

Principal of the school, Kieran McCrory, explained: “For lots of the people visiting Foley Primary School this weekend, they are not only meeting Santa, they are also entering classrooms in which they themselves were taught many years previously, making the entire experience extra meaningful and magical.”

The Parents Association for Foley Primary School, along with the help from lots of people from the local community, made this truly wonderful event possible.

All proceeds from the event have gone towards school funds. The staff of Foley Primary School would like to thank everyone for supporting this truly unforgettable event.

Sinn Féin councillor Bróna Haughey said the Foley PTA deserve “a massive congratulations…in organising the excellent Christmas grotto last week”.

She said: “They put in a tremendous effort and delivered an event that was hugely successful and enjoyed by all in the community.

“Transforming the Masters house into a festive grotto with activities for the children and opportunities to meet with Santa were all received extremely well and it was extremely heartening to see the joy this brought to many local families and children.

“The event was a great success for the parents association, helping to raise vital funds for the school in the year ahead and I wish them the very best of luck with their future projects.”
