Yesterday we had a fundraiser for Muscular Dystrophy Ireland. Each child was asked to wear a Christmas Jumper / Hat and to make a donation. It was a day when we fondly remembered two of our past pupils - Ciarán Forde & Keith McAuliffe who had this condition and recently passed away. The senior boys went to Mass for them and the Juniors had a prayer service in the school where they lit two candles for the boys beside the crib. These were lighting for the day in their memory.
