Chicks Departure

June 22nd, 2017

We were all very sad in St Tola’s to see the departure of our 7 chicks that hatched in  school. Gerard from Inagh Free Range Farm came to pick them up last Friday. He brought some of the chicks older brothers and sisters to show everyone how quickly the chicks will grow and what they will look like in a few short months. The chicks had a great time touring from classroom to classroom throughout the week!
