Holy Communion Update

Saturday, 8 May 2010 was first Holy Communion day for the pupils of Rang 2 at Gaelscoil Philib Barún. Many congratulations to the pupils, their families and their teachers for being (as the priest remarked several times during the ceremony), one of the best-prepared and well-mannered classes he’d had the pleasure of dealing with for many years.

The day was also once again made more special by the terrific reception afterwards at the school, hosted by the parents of Rang 1 for the family and friends of those making their Holy Communion. This (now traditional) reception has become a very popular event in the annual school calendar and provides extended family and friends with a unique opportunity to see the school, something many of them might never otherwise have the chance to do.

A huge debt of gratitude must go to the parents of Rang 1 and the Parents Association who organised and hosted this reception so brilliantly, and of course to all of the parents who donated cakes and other food items. Rumour has it that Elton John is looking to hire you for his next post-Oscar party!

Well done and congratulations to one and all.
