Happy St Patrick’s Day and Good luck in your exams!
“Beannachta File Padraig Oraibh”!! – Let´s try pronouncing this!
(“St. Patrick’s Day blessing upon you!”)
Do you fancy celebrating St Paddy´s this weekend, but you´re not sure how?
Watch this video to find out about how to celebrate like an Irishman 😉
St Patrick is one of the patron saints of Ireland. He is said to have died on 17th March in or around the year 493. He grew up in Roman Britain, but was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. After some years he managed to return to his family and became involved in his local church. He later returned to Ireland as a missionary and worked in the north and west of the country.
Patrick’s Day is celebrated in many parts of the world, especially by Irish communities and organizations. Many people wear something green on 17th March and if they don´t, they get pinched!
This year, during these St Patrick´s Day celebrations, some of our students are sitting their FCE and CAE exams- wear something green so that St Patrick and his Leprechaun will cast a lucky spell on you!!
We wish you good luck in your exam.
Here are some lucky four-leaf clovers!
