St. Patrick's Day Celebration

Students of 1A gathered to reflect on the life and mission of our patron saint in advance on March 17th. They learned about his childhood in Wales, the time he spent in slavery as a shepherd and a very special call from God to return to Ireland to preach Christianity. Students learned about the story of St. Patrick and the ancient myths of Irish culture by engaging with symbols such as the shamrock, leprechaun and delicious snake like treats. Each student received a gold model as an award of what they had learned during the lesson. We wish all of our students a happy and safe St. Patrick's Day 2017.
