WATCH - Kids greeted with Alpaca on first day of school.


Children in Carrick on Shannon’s new Gaelscoil, Gaelscoil Liatroma, welcomed the first batch of junior infants at their newly developed facilities in the Leitrim town late last week, with special woolly visitor meeting the class.

The students who are embarking on their educational paths through Irish, were welcomed on their first day by a baby alpaca. The cria (baby alpaca) was brought into the classroom by local farmer, Andrew Chilton, who allowed the cria to roam free around the classroom. This gave the students a chance to get up close and personal with their new woolly friend and many even took the chance to pet it.

“Féach ar an gcuairteoir speisialta a bhí linn inniu......Look at the special visitor we had with us today....” Gaelscoil Liatroma posted on Facebook.

As one can imagine the arrival created a lot of excitement among the class of thirty plus pupils and made their first week of school one to remember.
