Pelo segundo ano consecutivo, o Agrupamento de Inglês celebrou o dia 17 de março, dia de São Patrício, santo padroeiro da Irlanda, com a Exposição Saint Patrick’s Day e um Concurso de Cartolas na mesma temática. Participaram alunos dos vários ciclos do agrupamento e a adesão foi quase total! O empenho e a criatividade dos alunos foram postos à prova e o resultado foi brilhante! Awesome!… De facto, os trabalhos apresentados foram sinónimo de grande qualidade! Estão todos de Parabéns! É um prazer enorme trabalhar assim! O dia 17 de março celebra-se na Irlanda e noutros países de expressão inglesa, mas também noutras partes do globo.

Patrício nasceu na costa oeste da Grã-Bretanha, a pequena localidade galesa de Banwen é frequentemente referida como o seu lugar de nascimento, embora haja muitas hipóteses sobre este facto. Quando tinha dezesseis anos foi capturado e vendido como escravo para a Irlanda, de onde escapou e retornou à casa da sua família seis anos mais tarde. Iniciou então a sua vida religiosa e voltou para a ilha de onde tinha fugido para pregar o Evangelho. Para explicar como a Santíssima Trindade era três e um ao mesmo tempo utilizava o trevo de três folhas e por isso o mesmo tem um papel importante na cultura Irlandesa.

É muito reverenciado nos Estados Unidos devido ao grande número de imigrantes irlandeses. Em Manhattan, Nova Iorque, há uma catedral com o seu nome. No dia 17 de março há diversas comemorações na Irlanda e nos Estados Unidos, conhecidas como desfiles de São Patrício, onde ocorrem festejos e cortejos em memória do santo, sendo essa a principal forma de afirmação do orgulho dos imigrantes e descendentes de irlandeses na América.
