This week we have are celebrating Catholic Schools Week. Schools all over Ireland are celebrating this special week. During this week the pupils, staff, parents, grandparents and the people of the parish will show, in lots of different ways, that they are proud of their Catholic school. It is good to celebrate who we are and what we do. The theme of Catholic Schools Week this year is Celebrating the work of our local Catholic schools. Each Catholic school shares an ethos that is inclusive, welcoming and vibrant. In our school every person no matter what background or place they come from makes our school a better place. God loves everyone equally and he taught us to treat each other as we would treat ourselves. We are proud of our Catholic school and it is good to celebrate the work that we do.
We celebrate Grandparents Day on Wednesday the 30th of January. Our grandparents are a special gift in our lives.They watch over us as we grow and are often some of the most important teachers in our lives. They have seen and experienced many changes in our world, both good and bad. We will say a prayer in class tomorrow for all our grandparents.
