On the 16th of November nearly 100 6th year students gathered in the Áras to the much awaited Sraith Pictiúr Seó. They witnessed the dreaded 20 picture sequences like never before! The show was full of humor and fun with some students even strutting their stuff on stage! Afterwards they practiced the Irish conversation with great hints and tips provided. Overall the students thoroughly enjoyed the experience and felt it helped them a lot in preparation for the Irish Oral.
