The annual Windows on the World project was one of the highlights of the St. Patrick's Day celebrations which started last week.
The annual window decoration project for schools is organised by Bray Lions Club.
'Each school studies a foreign country and prepares a window display,' said Declan McAndrew, President of Bray Lions Club.
The Lions Club arranges for an ambassador or senior embassy official to visit the school and talk to the children about their country.
Dr. Ruth Adler, ambassador of Australia visited Scoil Chualann last week. This was followed up by a visit by Mrs. Marianne Ziss, First secretary at the French Embassy, to St. Fergal's Junior National School. More visits are due to take place over the coming weeks.
Declan McAndrew thanked the Bray Shopkeepers who have given great support to the project over the years. Already three displays are all already installed in shops this year.
They included Photocraft hosting the St. Fergal's project on France and Fitzmaurice's Feel Good pharmacy hosting the Gaelscoil Ui Cheadaigh project on Romania.
'Bray Lions Club wish to thank all those involved in the project, the pupils, the teachers, the shopkeepers and the ambassadors,' said Declan.
