Thurles Library Open Day
On Monday, 20th January 2020, the students of 5th and 6th Class attended a Confirmation retreat in Holycross Abbey. The children explored the Sacrament of Confirmation and learned about the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit. They explored how they could display the Fruits of the Holy Spirit in their lives and wrote prayers to help them on their journey to becoming adult members of the church. We thank Father Murphy for organising this worthwhile and enjoyable day.
On Thursday, 30th January 2020, we celebrated Grandparents’ Day as part of Catholic Schools’Week. We were so honored to have so many parents and grandparents join us at amass in St. Mary’s church and were delighted to welcome them to our school for refreshments afterwards. It was a truly wonderful experience for the children to have their grandparents in school and to acknowledge the important role that they play in teaching us in the ways of life and the ways of faith. We extend our gratitude to all those who assisted on Grandparents Day or who provided a wonderful array of confectionery for the day.
Credit Union Quiz 2019 – 2020
On the 31stJanuary 2020, two teams went to compete in the Credit Union Quiz in the Templemore Arms. On the Senior Team was Cormac Healion, Emily Kelly, Julia McHugh and Matilda Stapleton with Emma Bergin, Caoimhe Kiely, Aoife Ryan and Grace Ryan making up the Junior Team. This year proved tough for our two teams who, despite performing very well, did not place in the top three this year in their respective categories. Nevertheless, they performed to the best of their ability and had good fun on the night.
Well done to all involved including our wonderful substitutes Niamh Mockler, Cliana Nolan and Hazel Ryan.
