What an amazing day!!! Full of new experiences and learning! We arrived in RTE just before 11.15am, as scheduled. We were treated to drinks and biscuits on arrival. There was a little waiting around before recording began, so we were able to go outside, to play and enjoy the fine weather. And we got to meet Ryan Tubridy!
With rehearsals going overtime we were only brought into the Donnacha’s Two Talented studio at 12.15. It was exciting to see the studio set up, to see Donnacha and to observe the camera men/women and floor manager in action. We saw a young boy from Kerry singing and then his mum joined him. We clapped, cheered, sang and danced on cue!!!
After that we met Anne Marie Smyth, who is in charge of the News2day show, and Cillian, one of the presenters. They brought us on a tour around the newsrooms and we saw journalists and editors busy at their computers. She also brought us in to see the Late Late Show set. It was HUGE and the amount of lights and sound equipment hanging from the ceiling was amazing.
Anne Marie then brought us to the News2day studio, where all the children got to sit on the couch and see themselves on camera and screens.
After that some of the children were brought into another recording studio where their voices were recorded for the News2day programme. Some children around Europe had been asked what they thought about Europe, in advance of the EU elections. RTE had translated their answers and some of our class do the voiceovers for these children in the news clip.
And then it was time for home. Exhausted but a great day out!

We here at Primrose Hill NS are delighted to have received our very first Active Schools Flag! We have all worked very hard to achieve this and will continue to do so. A big well done to our Active School Committee from the last and present school year. We were delighted to raise our brand new Active School Flag the day before our Easter holidays, after a very active Easter Bunny Hop in Castletown.

6th Class have now completed the Junior Entrepreneur Programme and have had great fun along the way. They designed and marketed their delicious product “Drizzle” and sold to the children on their launch day on 25th March and took orders for production and delivery on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th March. They worked very hard on this project and made a profit with their sales. They’ve learnt a lot about creating a business such as: projected costs, profit and loss and the hard work that goes into getting it off the ground. Well done 6th Class!
