1500th Anniversary of St. Colmcille - On Tuesday, 7th December, we celebrated the 1500th anniversary of the birth of St. Colmcille. We enjoyed learning all about St. Colmcille on this day, the Patron Saint of our school. We celebrated Mass online, completed research and art-work while learning about his life as a missionary spreading Christianity around Ireland and Scotland. We learnt a very important message from St. Colmcille; that it is ok to make mistakes as long as we learn from them, always try to put things right and show that we are sorry.
Advent - As we celebrate the season of Advent the boys and girls have been creating some beautiful Advent art. We are using this time to think about others and the ways that we can prepare for the arrival of the baby Jesus on Christmas Day.
The Giving Tree - We are overwhelmed with the response to The Giving Tree fundraiser, the children have loved placing the baubles on the tree with the names of those who have donated. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their kind and generous donations. We are looking forward to giving the money raised to our local St. Vincent De Paul during the last week of school to help those who are less fortunate over the Christmas period. There is still time to donate if you would like to contribute.
