The CBS has been a hive of activity over the past few days as part of Catholic Schools Week. First Classes visited St Bridget’s Shrine at Faughart while Fifth Classes took part in the Seinn Concert held in the Redeemer Church. Many classes participated in a range of in-class activities to celebrate Catholic Schools Week of which the theme this year was Catholic Schools: Called to Serve. We concluded our celebrations with a Grandparents’ Day which saw over 150 extra visitors to our school. They were treated to a selection of poems, prayers and songs and a Prayer Service. Following this, our guests availed of tea or coffee and a variety of sweet treats- with parents and some members of staff contributing their baking skills! After break our classrooms were open to all grandparents to let them see their grandchildren working and playing, as well as to see how schooling has changed over time!
We were delighted to see such huge numbers join us in celebrating a very important time of year for our school. Huge thanks must go to the organizing committee of Mrs Hanratty, Mrs Corcoran and Ms Conroy who, as usual, did an amazing job and the large amount amount of visitors, coupled with their positive comments regarding the day was a tribute to the work of the team. Thanks also to the Parents’ Committee, parents, SNAs and teachers who helped make the day such a success.
