The Crawley Irish community took part in the International Day at Gossops Green Primary School that took place on Thursday 1 March 2012 which was said to be a renounding success by all involved. Ireland came out to be the favourite country to be visited on the day and and many children who didn’t get a chance to visit had heard ‘rumours’ about what the class looked like and the activities involved. ‘Ireland’ was also evaluated as the best decorated classroom.
