Fethard were well represented in this year’s UN Day in Ethiopia held on Friday, October 25. Richard Robinson, Watergate, Fethard, a former pupil of Holy Trinity National School, is now living in Ethiopia with his parents, Catherine and Tim, while they undertake work on a Concern development programme for two years.
Young Richard has settled into his new environment very well and his new school, Sandford International, has proved to be an enlightening experience with pupils from more than 50 different nationalities attending. For this year’s UN Day celebrations on October 25, the pupils all dressed up in whatever national costume they could find and paraded their appropriate flags. Richard is looking forward to sharing his many adventures by Skyping his Fethard school friends at Holy Trinity NS.
