Catholic Schools Week 2016 took place from 29th January. The theme for this week was “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service” and it gave everyone involved in Catholic education the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution that our Catholic schools make to Irish life. Catholic schools support the work of parents in teaching their children about Jesus’ love for them. Parents are encouraged to take time to reflect on what it means to have your child as part of a Catholic school community and to consider how you can support the work being done in your child’s Catholic school. Any parent wishing to examine the programme for Catholic Schools Week can find it at https://www.ncea.org/NCEA/Proclaim/Catholic_Schools_Week/School_Choice_Week.aspx
This week of special activities culminated with a visit from our chaplain Fr. Andrew on St. Blaise’ Day who blessed the throats of all our pupils and staff.
