Grandparents' Day

31st Jan 2020

As part of Catholic Schools Week we invited our grandparents into school to visit their grandchildren and see the wonderful work they do every day. 

In Year 7 many of our children will be receiving the sacrament of Confirmation next week and we know how important grandparents are in passing on the faith to their grandchildren. 

As tomorrow is the 1st of February and the feast of St Brigid we decided to make St Brigid’s Crosses together. We had a lovely morning meeting all the grannies and grandads and of course we were thinking about all our lovely grandparents who live as far away as The Philippines, Venezuela, Poland, Slovakia, Zimbabwe and even Donegal! 

We also remembered our Grandparents in Heaven with a special prayer.
