The school community gathered together for a Christmas Carol Service in Woodlock Hall on Friday 22nd December 2017. Students were invited to reflect on the story of Christ's birth and how it challenges us all to give the very best of ourselves, especially to those most in need over the holidays. A short video on a young boy's very touching act of charity was played during the service. Transition Year students shared their experiences of volunteering as part of their Befriending Projects over the past few months. Clare Mander from Saint Vincent de Paul expressed her gratitude to our students, especially the Ember Team, for their contribution to this year's food appeal. 1st year students offered their Christmas wishes for a better future for all in society. Ms McSwiney led the choir in very beautiful renditions of Christmas carols. This was a lovely ending to the school term.
