Today, we had our End of Year Service in the school hall. Children were presented with their certificates for swimming, attendance and gratuation from their class. Some children only missed 3 days of school this year, despite a Global Pandemic. Congratulations to these children. Thank you to Canon Brian for joining us today and presenting the children with their certificates. Thank you to all the parents that joined us for our celebration.
6th Class presented Ms Brownrigg with a hoodie to remember them by and some gifts from them and their families. We are sad to say goodbye to these children but know they are ready for the next chapter of their lives! Best of luck to the ten Sixth Class children, as they head off to Kilkenny College and Tullow Community School.
