27 Jan

At assembly yesterday afternoon we had a lovely discussion about Grandparents Day which is part of Catholic Schools Week. Teachers told us of children who are trying their best to improve in their classrooms and in their work. The efforts made by these children inspire not only their fellow students but their teachers also.

The teachers spoke of children who are mature, hard working and very consistent workers. We heard again of children who could be presented with this award every week consistently abiding bu our school rules and it’s lovely to see such students receive this acknowledgement.

As always our teachers spoke of the commitment to peers shown by students and their high levels of interaction with their own classmates and the other students. To hear consistently of these students make us very proud. Máith sibh go léir. Táimid fíor bhródúil asaibh.
