‘All of the children in Year Three worked very hard in the preparation for Reconciliation and they were fantastic ambassadors for the school on Wednesday during the service.

They should all be very proud of  themselves.
Thank you to all the staff that have helped the children to prepare
for this special part of their faith journey.

We pray for them now as they continue to prepare to make their First Holy Communion in September:
