Catholic Schools’ Week 2022


Catholic Schools Week is being celebrated in schools across the island of Ireland from Sunday 23 January – Sunday 30 January. The theme for Catholic Schools Week 2022 is ‘Catholic Schools: Living Life to the Full’. In our school we took time, on Wednesday, to celebrate our grandparents in many different ways. While some of the older classes joined in  Mass which was streamed from Holy Family Church, Askea, the boys and girls from 1st and 2nd Classes made cards and wrote some very beautiful thoughts about their grandparents.
