I’m an original E.T. baby, I attended the first North Dublin E.T. where my mum was principal for over 40 years, my first memory as a toddler is the older classes taking place in our living room while the prefabs were being built. I am still friends with my class mates from my E.T. school, some of whom I would consider my best friends over 25 years after leaving school. As we have just become part of this school’s community this year I think it would be lovely to be involved from the beginning of our time here, especially as the school grows. Thank you for your consideration!
