Our Volunteers from ESB came to visit us today, ahead of their work with the girls from 2nd Class, over the coming months.. Cliona Fitzsimons from “Business in the Community” presented the girls with their books and from the photos you’ll see that they can’t wait to get down to work with their new friends!!
This morning, when we came to school, we were saddened by the news that Geraldine Thorpe, Ella’s granny, passed away yesterday after a relatively short illness. Geraldine was a great friend to the schools of the parish down the years, expending much of her tremendous energy in fundraising for many causes, not least of which was our schools. We would just like her family to know that our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very sad time in their lives. “Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis..”
