A Thuisti,

Our First Communion last Saturday was a great success. The weather was fantastic which really added to the occasion. The children said their prayers and sang the songs beautifully. A big thanks to Ms O’ Donoghue who prepared the children so well for their big day. The choir sang beautifully and we thank everyone for giving their time on Saturday. The Parents’ Association did a fantastic job in catering for the congregation in the hall afterwards. We appreciate their huge efforts and we thank them for their continued support.

Our Boys’ Rounders’ Team were due to play Rathmore N.S. last week. They were unable to field a team so they gave us the game. Our Girls’ Rounders’ Team are playing in Nobber this Thursday. We will be leaving the school at 11.20a.m. and will need help with lifts.
