First Holy Communion Class - May Bulletin From Fr. Peter
Please click on the link to read the May bulletin from Fr. Peter for the parents and children of children making their First Holy Communion in 2nd Class.
May is the Month of Mary
May is the month of Mary. Every year in school we have our May altar in honour of Mary. During this month we remember Mary in a special way. We can pray to Mary. The Hail Mary is a lovely prayer we can say. When we pray the Rosary we remember in a special way the story of Jesus and Mary. We remember how God chose Mary to be the Mother of Jesus. Mary is our Mother too. May 1st is also the Feast of St Joseph the Worker. March 19th is the Feast of St Joseph, the husband of Mary. Joseph was a very good and holy man. He cared for and loved Jesus and Mary. He is a saint and we can pray to him too. We call the family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, The Holy Family.
Update from Ms. Martin
E.S.B. Networks have informed us that the power will be off in the area from 8am until 10am tomorrow Wednesday 28/04/2021 for essential maintenance. The school will operate as normal. We had a burst water pipe last week and managed to remain open throughout the repairs and so will do the same tomorrow. Hopefully power will resume at 10am. May Bank Holiday - School will be closed on Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th May. Regards, U. Martin Principal

Farewell To Michael Our Caretaker
Caretaker Michael Reynolds has been our caretaker since 2007. His cheerful personality and friendly disposition have served as great assets to our school. Michael is retiring from the position and he will be missed by staff, pupils and parents. When circumstances around the virus improve we will invite Michael up to the school but, in the meantime, our farewells must be virtual. I'm sure you will all join with me in wishing Michael all the best for the future.
