Minister Brendan Griffin paid a visit to Loreto National School on Friday last to speak with the pupils about his life in the Dáil and to advise them on their upcoming entry in the Junior Entrepreneur competition.
Minister Griffin received a warm welcome and the pupils were very excited to hear him speak about his life as a politician. When questioned about his love for the job, he replied ‘I get huge job satisfaction and a thrill from helping in the community’
He gave a very detailed insight into his life, from his daily routine to his holidays. The pupils were very interested in the visit as it holds a very close connection to their upcoming entry in the Junior Entrepreneur competition. Loreto National School won the Community Champions award in last years competition for their project ‘Tick Kits’ and hope to continue their great success again this year. Minister Griffin explained to the pupils that ‘individuals can change lives and the world’. These words have motivated the pupils to learn more about political life. He also gave them lots of tips on their Junior Entrepreneur project.
Thanks to Minister Brendan Griffin for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit our school.
