This is Catholic Schools Week. The theme is ‘Catholic Schools Called to Serve’. We will be having an assembly this Thursday (January 29th) to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.
The motto on our school website is “Great Oaks From Little Acorns Grow”. A number of years ago, before the extension to our school, parents created a fantastic piece of artwork on this motto for the school. Unfortunately during the building work for the extension, this piece of artwork ‘disappeared’. We are looking for parents who would be interested in creating a similar piece of artwork for our school. If you are interested we would be delighted to hear from you. We feel it would work very well with the “Seed of Learning” sculpture already in the school.
There is no Credit Union this week as the school is closed on Friday (January 30th).
