We held our first whole school assembly since 2020 with Reverend Eugene and we were all so happy to be back together again! Eugene shared with us the remarkable story of Priscilla, a 99 year old grandmother who began primary school at the age of 91. Priscilla is passionate about the importance of education and she wants to set a good example for her grandchildren as well as in her local community in Kenya. We wish Priscilla the best of luck in her ambition to become a doctor. A real-life inspiration!
Ms. Coyle's Junior, Senior & 1st class treated us to a presentation of their project work on Ireland. They told us interesting facts about Ireland and showed us the flags they had created. They did a fantastic job!!
Eugene also shared with us a wonderful project he was a part of called The Irish Blessing. This lovely video shows over 300 church communities, from every county in Ireland, coming together to sing a blessing for us all.
Eugene came in to our classes today to show us some of his stoles that he wears for the church services. He explained that each of the stoles follows the seasons in Church time. He showed us one with the tree of life and a rainbow, another one showed a purple Celtic cross and candles, another one was green with sunflowers and he also showed us one with a red cross and flames. He also showed us some special stoles he received as a gift from some women who hand crafted them in Mozambique. Eugene explained that the colours on all his stoles are connected just like we are connected to God!
