Pupils from St Patrick’s and St Brigid’s Primary School have enjoyed taking part in Catholic Schools Week.
This annual celebration of Catholic education raises awareness of the unique contribution Catholic schools make in the local community and to the lives of children who attend them.
Some of the highlights of the week were the Grandparent’s Day where grannies and granda’s visited the school to learn about school today and tell the children what school was like in their day. Mr. Tony Murray, a past vice principal of St Patrick’s Boys School entertained the entire assembly with stories of growing up in rural Fermanagh. His wife, a past teacher of St Brigid’s Primary School told the children about going to school in Ballycastle when she was a little girl. After the assembly grandparents spent some time with children in their classrooms helping them to make St Brigid’s crosses. To conclude the celebration on Friday the Primary One students performed a play about St Brigid and Fr Barney offered prayers and reflections.
