Summer Assessments

Summer tests will take place over three weeks beginning on Monday, 13th May 2019. Please ensure that your child is in school over these weeks to complete their assessments.

 

Sacramental Celebrations

Primary 7 preparations for Confirmation are now well underway. We look forward to the Service of Light which takes place on Thursday, 2nd May at 7.00pm and the Confirmation ceremony on Wednesday, 15th May in St Patrick’s Church at 6.00pm.

We keep our P7 boys and girls in our prayers as they approach this special day and wish every blessing on them.

Congratulations to our P4 boys and girls who made their First Communion on 7th April. The children worked extremely hard to prepare for their special occasion and it was lovely to see the respect and reverence they showed during the ceremony. Our thanks are extended to Miss Delaney, Mr Smyth, Mrs Kilmartin, Mrs McGreevy and Miss McCartan for all they did to make this occasion so meaningful to the children. We hope that this will be the first of many times that the children will experience this very important sacrament.

A big thank you must also go to our Parent Support Group and parents of P3 children who gave up their time to prepare the Parish Centre and provide refreshments to the families of our P4 children.

Trocaire 2019

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 £961.70 for Trocaire.
