First Holy Communion

5 pupils made their First Holy Communion on 22nd May 2015. The staff did a wonderful job of converting the school hall into a fitting venue for the Mass. We were delighted to welcome back Fr. Lumsden. The Parents Association had a party ready in the canteen for the family and friends of all the pupils. It was a great day.

A huge 'Thank You' goes out to Rachel, Lynn and Liz for preparing Mark, Jack, Julianne, Kevin and Ciara for the night. Thank you also to the Parents Association who, as always, surpassed themselves with all the work that went on behind the scenes and their attention to detail on the night.

Caterpillar Project

Our students learned about the lifecycle of a butterfly first hand through May and June. In mid May, each class was given eight tiny caterpillars to name and care for, each in their own private container. The classes were able to observe the caterpillars grow very quickly. They formed chrysalides which were then placed in our “butterfly pavilions”. 10 days later we had 60 beautiful Painted Lady butterflies which were released at the front of the school.
