Well done to the pupils in Junior Three and Junior Four who celebrated their First Confession yesterday. Thank you to Fr. Martin and all who attended. We are very much looking forward to the First Holy Communion at the end of April! Take a look below at our First Confession Tree. It reminds us to be kind to one another and to say sorry when we are not.
We have just got all the monies in from tickets sold for the concert in December last. We are delighted to announce that €3,376 was raised for the school. Thanks to the parents who organised the event and thanks to everyone who attended. Thanks also to people who donated prizes for the raffle. We are so lucky to have a group like the Killtullagh Community Choir who are willing to give their time and talent for the benefit of the school.
Alan Quinlan, John Hayes and Gavin Duffy were greeted in the school yesterday with a rousing chorus of 'Ireland's Call'. The players accompanied by officials from Ulster Bank met with the pupils and displayed trophies won in the past and hopefully will be won by Ireland again. They posed for photos with the pupils and staff and joined in a few songs. A great way to start the day. Click on the photos below
