Exciting Book Launch of
It’s Our Cookbook 2018- Recipes from Cregmore National School.
On Thursday the 17th of May, the school community of Scoil Pádraig Naofa welcomed Fr Des Walsh to launch their impressive school cookbook. Creating this cookbook provided these pupils with the exciting opportunity to collaborate with one another and to design a finished product that they are all extremely proud of. Every pupil and teacher in the school were encouraged to provide their own special recipes, a selection of which were chosen to be included in the publication. Both the children and school staff thoroughly enjoyed the day the enthusiastic production team, Katriona,, Caroline and Shane attended their school. Great fun was had by all as they dressed up as budding chefs, posing with an array of marvellous props. They were overwhelmed with the incredible support they received from all their generous sponsors. This support reiterates the love that the school and surrounding community feel towards their little heart warrior- Jonah. Jonah was born in July 2015 with a rare heart condition and since then he has defied all medical opinion as he continues to battle courageously each day. During this fantastic event a cheque for €3,000 was presented to Edel, Jonah’s mother, proceeds of the sale of the cookbook to date.
During the cook book launch the sixth class children entertained all present with cookery demonstrations ranging from parma ham and melon starters, a gorgeous vegetarian pasta dish and a fabulous selection of tasty treats for dessert. Everybody enjoyed delicious samples of everything that was prepared on the day.
A special word of thanks was given to Carla (Ms Duggan) and Margaret without whom this project would not have been possible.
Gratitude was expressed to all who have purchased the cookbook to date, some copies are still available for sale from the school office 091 799037.
