Grandparents’ Day Celebrations 2016


The three 1st classes were delighted to bring their grandparents to school today! We were proud to show off our songs, prayers and lovely artwork.

We hope all of the grandparents enjoyed our prayer service and know just how special they are to their grandchildren.

We remember especially all of our grandparents who couldn’t be with us today.


Thank you to Fr. John for leading the prayers and to Ms. Russell, Ms. Dolan and Mr. Sheekey for helping us prepare for the big day. Thanks also to the Parents Association for providing tea and coffee as well as some lovely buns and cakes!

The children from 1st Class have invited their grandparents to a special prayer service as part of ‘Catholic Schools Week’. This will take place on Thursday 4th February in the school hall.

We will be singing two songs on the day – click play below to listen and/or practise at home!
