Primary 4 First Communion – Thanks to all who attended the First Communion on Saturday 20th April. Thanks to the Primary 4 teachers and classroom assistants for the preparation before the service. Thanks to Miss Wade and the school choir for singing at the Mass, to Fr. Mc Dermott, Monsignor Dolan and Brian Mc Closkey and the rest of the team at the chapel. The primary 4 pupils were fantastic in every way, their behaviour before, during and after the ceremony was impeccable. Their contribution to all parts of the ceremony was fantastic! It really was a beautiful service that was enjoyed by all in attendance.
