Welcome to Class 3


Mrs O'Donohoe and the Class 3 team have very high expectations of the children in Class 3. Yet also think it is important for everyone to have fun. 
Children in our class have to be prepared to always try their best, have a supportive and enthusiastic attitude and above all respect everyone and everything throughout school.
