End of School Year 2015
Ss. Peter & Paul N.S. had a great celebratory End of Year day on June 22nd last. It began with Mass at 10.00am. This was followed by the raising of the school’s fourth Green Flag as well as the raising of the school’s first Young Entrepreneur Flag. The children explained why and how the school had won those two particular flags. Refreshments followed for all. It was a wonderful day. Well done to everyone involved and to all who organised it.
Best wishes also to Enda, Kayleen, Grace, Liam, Kienan and Grace in sixth class who will be moving on to Second Level in the autumn.
On Sunday, May 31st the community turned up in force to witness the unveiling and the blessing of a bench dedicated to the memory of the late Brigid Cogger. The bench is situated, very appropriately, beside the entrance to the thirteenth century Straide abbey. Sitting on the bench, one can get a clear view of Brigid’s house located in nearby Knockshanvalley. The sun shone brightly for the occasion – another miracle from Brigid! Sincere thanks to all who made this happen and to Audrey for the wonderful photographs. May Brigid Rest in Peace and may this bench evoke a memory and may it be of consolation for the many who continue to mourn her passing.
