Catholic Schools Week begins on Sunday 28th January-Saturday 3rd February. As part of our activities for this week we would like to invite all grandparents on Wednesday 31st January for the annual St Bridget’s cross making in the School Hall from 1-2pm. In fact, anyone in the community who would like to attend is more than welcome!
Grandparents’ Day celebrates the important role that grandparents play in the lives of our pupils. This should be a lovely opportunity for grandparents to show off their cross making skills and tell stories of when they were little, stories of their school days and how they celebrated St. Bridget’s day.  Please feel free to bring along some rushes but the children will try and have enough rushes for everyone anyway!

Today we are focusing on our own families. Families come in all shapes and sizes. Each family is
unique and made up of the people who love and care for us. No family is perfect but Pope Francis
tells us that all families should ‘live in love’.

We were delighted to welcome Olivia,a representative from Bothar,who took us through a very informative presentation on the work Bothar does abroad and where our donations go.

We raised €550 from our Christmas stocking draw and with this money we were able to purchase the gift of a In-kid dairy goat,a flock of laying hens,share of a flock of guinea fowl and a water filtration system.
Thank you to everyone who bought tickets????
