imageCity Quay N.S. was honoured to welcome not one but THREE Government Ministers to our school!

They launched the new nutritional guidelines for school meals and the children told the Ministers and the journalists all about our school’s healthy eating habits. 

The children represented the school very well and we are extremely proud of them.

 

 

 

Here you can see the Minister for Education, Richard Bruton, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris and the Minister for Social Protection, Regina Doherty sharing some delicious fruit with the pupils.

They were all very impressed by our wonderful students.

Below are some links to articles featuring our students:
