Welcome Back

We welcome all of our pupils back after the Summer break, especially the boys and girls in Primary 1 who have joined St Patrick’s. We wish you all every success in this new school year.

Attendance and Punctuality

Most parents recognise the benefits of regular and punctual school attendance but there are those who do not. This year attendance will be monitored on a monthly basis and parents of children falling below the required levels will be contacted. Parents of children with irregular and poor attendance will be held accountable to the school and to the Education Authority – SE Region Education Welfare Service. Please help us to help your child by making sure your child is in school daily. Find out more about school attendance on: https://www.education-ni.gov.uk/sites/default/files/publications/de/attendance-matters-a-parents-guide.pdf

Confirmation

Congratulations to the P7 boys and girls who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on the 13th May. It was a pleasure to see the children approach their preparations with such maturity with their contribution on the day making the ceremony a wonderful celebration. We hope and pray that their faith will continue to develop in the coming years and be filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

First Communion

Our prayers are with the P4 boys and girls who make their First Communion on Saturday, 4th June at 10.00am in St Patrick’s Church, Ballynahinch. We ask God to be with them as they receive the body and blood of Jesus for the first time.

Trocaire 2016 – Climate Change, Climate Justice!

It was great to see the children working so hard to raise much needed funds for Trocaire over Lent.   We thank our parents for supporting the children in their fundraising efforts and ask that you always encourage them to think of others who are less fortunate than us. Sincere thanks to everyone who made our Lenten charity work such a huge success. Together we raised £922.14 for Trocaire.
