GALLERY: Swansea goes green for St Patrick's Day

It was a sea of green at St Patrick’s Primary School, Swansea today as the school and local community came together to celebrate St Patrick’s Day 2015!

Students, teachers, parents and even grandparents got into the spirit, wearing green and taking part in activities which raised money for the “Something for Kate” cause.

To start off the day, the school held a St Patrick’s Day Liturgy followed by literacy activities that students did with their parents. Then, students broke up into groups for some St Patrick’s Day activities, including:

  • Shamrock salon
  • St Patrick’s Day craft
  • Games, including Irish bingo, Pot Of Gold treasure hunt, Hurley, “Top of the morning to you”, “Leprechaun, where's your shamrock?”, “Swipe the pot of gold”, “St Paddy's rainbow balloon ball”, “Shamrock memory”, “Green green leprechaun” and a shamrock and straw game.

Everything from green pancakes to green cupcakes were then on show for visitors and students to consume before parents and grandparents were then invited to go to the school hall to view artworks that the students created for the St Patrick’s Day art competition.
