Grandparents’ Day 2016

As part of Catholic Schools Week we held a special prayer service in school on Tuesday for ‘Grandparents’ Day’.  We invited pupils’ grandparents to visit the school.  This is a day for the school community to celebrate and pay tribute to grandparents and the role they play in handing on the faith to their grandchildren.  It is also a day to remember grandparents who are sick or are no longer with us.  We would like to thank all the grandparents and parents who attended and wish them well for the year ahead. Go mbeirimid uilig beo ar an am seo arís! Here are some pictures from ‘Grandparents’ Day’:
