First Communion

A reminder of a couple of important dates for the P4 Year Group.

  • First Communion takes place this Saturday, 1st of June at 11 am in St. Mary’s Church, Mullaghbawn.
  • P4 Thanksgiving Mass and Corpus Christi is on Sunday 2nd of June at 10.30 am again in St. Mary’s Church, Mullaghabawn.

 

Sometimes the best days just happen …..

The Nursery would like to thank Mrs O’Hagan, her P3class and Finnegan’s Nursery for coming over this morning and performing “Operation transformation”on our garden.  They weeded, planted and watered a new sensory patch and added splashes of colour and scent all around.  As a thank you we all shared morning snack outside and the ice lollies went down a treat.   We then made the most of the sunny day with  the P3s and Nursery enjoying an outdoor play session together, finishing our impromptu fun day with a magical dramatised story in our Willow Hut.  School days really are the best ……

 

 

Confirmation

A reminder to all that Confirmation takes place tomorrow at 5 pm in St. Oliver Plunkett’s Church, Forkhill. School closes at 1 pm, at which time all pupils will need to be collected from school, as there are no buses available for the home run.
