First Holy Communion 2017

May 19, 2017 Comments off

First Holy Communion was held in St. Joseph’s Church in Glenville on Saturday last 13th May 2017. Congratulations and well done to second class on making their First Holy Communion. A special thank you to their teacher Ms. Audrey Murphy and the SNA Anne Murphy who worked extremely hard in preparing the children for Holy Communion. We have to make a special mention to the choir who put on a great performance on the day under the guidance of Ms. Marion Forde and Ms. Mairead O Callaghan.

Thank you also to the Do This In Memory team who were a great help in the preparation for Holy Communion, especially Emma Thornhill O’ Mahony, Shella Browne and Annette Curtin. We would like to thank the parents who donated cakes and biscuits to the school for the day.  A special thank you to all those 1st class parents, parents from other classes and the Parents’ Association who helped out on the day with the refreshments in the Holy Family Centre afterwards. Without your help it wouldn’t have been possible.

On Friday 15th April we celebrated our Official opening of our new school. Thankfully the weather remained dry and there was a fantastic turnout from the local community both young and old to help us celebrate this momentous occasion! The whole school was involved in the preparation and as always the children of Glenville NS rose to the occasion from the Guard of Honour to the very talented performance on stage by the older children.
The plaques were unveiled by Past Principal Mr. Batt Dunlea, Parish Priest Fr. Cotter and Parent’s Association member Gillian Crowe. The tree was planted by former Parish Priest Fr. Cashman and Principal Michael O’Donnell and the ribbon was cut by Oliver Manley.
