Grandparents' Day



Today was a very special day in the St Colman's calendar. All students and staff gathered with family and friends in St Paul's Church to celebrate Grandparents' Day. The church was filled to bursting and the excitement was palpable. Mrs Garvey began the service by welcoming everyone who travelled from near and far to celebrate with us.

gp day 2019Fr Paul also extended a warm welcome to everyone before inviting Max, Maria, Livia and Fatima to the altar. Each student welcomed the congregation in Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian and Syrian respectively. During the Procession of Symbols, pupils accompanied by their grandparents brought symbols of our faith, our time in school and the love we have for each other, to the altar. We were asked to remember those who could not be present today, in particular those who are ill or in heaven.

The children from our first classes and junior infants also sang and they did a great job! As always there were many funny moments, including a poem entitled 'Grandma's off her rocker' and when Cian let it slip that grandad always gives him sweets! Afterwards, everyone was invited back to the school for refreshments. 

Thanks to Mrs Healy-Donoghue for organising this wonderful event and thanks also to all staff and parents who helped out with teas/coffees, baking and of course the cleaning up. A truly joyous occasion that was enjoyed by all!

St Brigid's Day

st brigidToday is St Brigid's Feast Day, also known as Lá Fhéile Bhríde and it marks the first day of Spring. St Brigid was born at Faughart near Dundalk, Co Louth and is one of Ireland's patron saints, along with Patrick and Columba. Although St Brigid may not be as well known as St Patrick, she was one of the most powerful women in Ireland. After refusing an arranged marriage, she went on to found several convents whose schools provided an education for thousands of young women.
