Communion and Confirmation 2016

May 27th, 2016

Over the past few weeks, 2nd and 6th classes have received the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation. We were blessed with beautiful weather on both days. All our boys and girls looked lovely on their special day and everyone played an important part in the ceremonies through prayers, readings, songs and gifts. Huge thanks to Ms. Hackett and Ms. Hogan for preparing both of their classes throughout the year. Ms. Halliday directed two fantastic choirs for each day and thanks also goes to those children throughout the school who gave up their Friday evening and Saturday morning to help make the ceremony what it was. Fr. Tom and Fr. Arnie presided over the ceremonies and we thank them both for their contributions, not just on the days, but throughout the year also.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope you are well this week. Our news is as follows

  • Congratulations to our Boys’ Basketball team who represented the school on Tuesday in the quarter finals of the Marian Keane basketball tournament. Unfortunately they did not win as they met a very skilled team in the Gaelscoil from Ennis. However our boys represented St Tolas well as they gave it their all and played in a very sporting manner. Well done Boys! Thank you to Ms. Fitzsimons, Ms Brown and Ms. O’ Neill who gave up their time to coach the boys over the past few weeks and months.
