As we prepare for Easter this Lent we are trying to Make a Difference in St. Louis. We are Celebrating Kindness by recording some of the kind things people do for us and giving ourselves a pat on the back by recording some of the kind things we do for others too. We are also making more of an effort to notice the things in our lives that make us happy; the things we a re grateful for. We’re recording these on our Sacred Space too.
Some people are trying to give up sweets, technology, meat, palm oil or some bad habits this Lent. Others are taking up new routines by spending more time playing outside, with their family, doing the things they love to do and practicing their skills and talents.

All of the pupils went to the hall this week to attend an assembly about Catholic Schools week.
This year we all went to Halla Cullen and had an advent service. We listened to stories and prayers and said our own prayers this Christmas. The choir sang some beautiful songs.
Thanks to Mr. Mooney for organising the event.
Room 16 made their own crib this year.
St. Brigid is a patron saint of Ireland. We read the story of St. Brigid on Monday and made these beautiful St. Brigid’s crosses to celebrate her feast day.
