Visit of Bishop Brennan to 6th year students
On Wednesday, 17 May Bishop Denis Brennan visited the school to speak to 6th year students. In glorious sunshine, he addressed the assembled students in the convent garden and encouraged them to be positive and upbeat in shaping their futures. He was accompanied on the visit by school chaplain, Fr. Jim Fegan. Sr. Helen O’ Riordan, chairperson of the Board of Management, wished the students every success in forthcoming examinations and in the years to come.
Mr. O’ Shea presented each student with a copy of the school’s 150th anniversary book, “Lasting Values”, as they will be the last students ever to sit the Leaving Certificate in the current building on Spawell Road.
