We were delighted to welcome Sue Wyatt, a teacher from Tasmania, and her pet Tasmanian Devil, Davo’ to St Peter’s this morning. Sue is the founder of the student blogging challenge and is good friends with our good friend, @merrybeau1 from St Brigid’s in Greystones, who put her in touch with us! We were thrilled to have her visit us this morning and we were really excited to tell her all about our experiences of blogging. As it was the Wicklow Sports Day, we had a group of 2nd, 5th and 6th classes in the library to talk to her.

First, we introduced ourselves and told Sue what we like about blogging.

Next, Sue told us about Tasmania and showed us Australian money. Did you know that Australian money is made from plastic?

She told us about native Australian animals and she even had a present for us! She had a platypus and an echidna with her, with two books about them. Polly was at Wicklow Sports today but we can’t wait to introduce them all tomorrow.


We wanted to show Sue how we put together a podcast so Kelsey and Dylan recorded one about the Sports Day last week.  

Finally, we showed Sue our favourite posts on the blog. Can you guess which was the most popular? Click here to find it!


It was lovely to meet Sue and Davo and we hope they really enjoy the rest of their trip. This is the post Davo wrote about us and this is the one he wrote about their afternoon with St Brigid’s! We can’t wait to see how he gets on with our friends in Cloughfin!

    Thank you students and staff at St Peter’s Bray for the wonderful morning I spent with you. Looks like Ms Sexton took lots of photos and sent out lots of tweets about our visit.

    Remember to visit my blog and leave some comments there.

    Great podcast Dylan and Kelsey, at least the people that didnt get to go wicklow sports got to do that. In Australia it would be easy to see counterfit money

    I think you should visit google because it is very cool and there’s lots of stuff to do. I saw it when we went for the Junior Spiders awards.

    I think you should go and see Dublin Zoo – you might see different animals that you’ve never seen before.

    Your money is cool because of the way it’s made and it looks like the coins are class too.

    The money was so cool and I think you should visit Cork and go to Fota Wildlife Park.

    The Australian money is completely different to the Irish money but the Australian money looks really cool.

    Thank you for that great trip Sue. I’m glad you visited us. If you are going to visit a place in Ireland I think you should go to the Giants Causeway.

    Thank you all very much for the warm welcome I got at your school. I noticed that the platypus and echidna enjoyed a trip to the beachfront.

    Also thanks for your ideas of where to visit while in Ireland.
