5th Year Event Task 2017
This year the 5th year classes each held an event in order to achieve their credits. Each class put in so much effort. Mr Curran's class sold Valentines cupcakes, calling their company Cupids Cupcakes. Ms. O'Loughlin's class held a Pancake Party and Mr. Doran's class held an Irish Party. Each class hoped to raise enough to bring themselves to the coffee shop which was an investigation we had to do for another key assignment.
