The children in 1st class headed on their school tour last week to Glanmore Food Factory and Millennium Park. Rooms 12 and 14 went on Wednesday and rooms 11 and 13 went on Thursday. Thankfully, both days were warm and sunny and we had a great time. The bus was waiting for us at the office and once we were all seated and fastened in we headed on the short journey to Glanmore, situated in Ballycoolin Industrial Estate.

 Once there, we were brought into a waiting area where our guides for the day explained a little about the factory and kitted us out in hair nets and white coats and gave us covers for our shoes to stop us from contaminating any of the food and products we would see.

We were split into groups and brought into a cleaning area where we all washed our hands. During the tour, we saw the areas where the packed lunches were made up, including the jelly and pasta, the fruit processing area, the sandwich assembly line and the bread making area. We even got to play with dough!

It was great fun! Once the tour was finished, we returned to the waiting area where we were given a treat bag containing jellies and juice. We enjoyed our treats while watching a video of the factory and then said our goodbyes.

We headed off on the bus once more. We stopped in Millennium Park where we played with our friends and had a picnic lunch. We later gathered up our stuff and returned to Scoil Thomáis in time for the bell. We were exhausted!
