Grandparents’ Day

30th Jan 2018

As part of Catholic Schools Week, the Primary Three children welcomed their grandparents into school today for a special ‘Prayer Service of Thanksgiving’.The children have been very busy preparing for this special occasion. Mr Mc Kinley thanked all our visitors for coming today and for their continous support to their grandchildren. Father Thomas led the children in prayer and song. There was a special mention of all grandparents who were unable to be there today. All deceased grandparents were remembered in a special way in our prayers also. The Primary Three teachers feel very proud of their pupils today. It was a very enjoyable morning for one and all. After the grandparents were treated to some light refreshments, they had an opportunity to have a look at the children’s work on display. They then came around the classrooms to see their grandchildren in their educational setting.The children enjoyed having their grandparents visit to their classrooms today where they presented a handmade card to them on arrival. Thank you to all staff who helped in any way today and in the days leading up to the prayer service.
