    Hi Sandy

    Thank you for email today, and also for the phone call just before the award ceremony in Dublin.
    Congratulations on a very successful Awards ceremony.

    Can I check with you, please, if Strabane Controlled P.S. is still in line for a ‘Highly Commended Award’ ?

    I see above that our project ‘Sow Far, Sow Good’ appears beside St. Eunan’s N.S. Raphoe.

    We hope we can still qualify for a certificate… The children and I were so disappointed that we were not permitted to go to Dublin ( Senior Management decision at school.)

    Hope to hear from you soon


    Strabane C.P.S.
