Our Lady’s school community once again gave very generously to the SVP appeal when they were successful in collecting food for 32 hampers which also included meat vouchers, a welcome present at Christmas time to any family in the locality.

The project was spearheaded by the Transition Year students and led by the Religion department. The response from the school community was very generous and the students were delighted to make the presentation to Mrs Carmel Allen representing Castleblayney SVP.  A special thank you to students, their parents and staff of Our Lady’s who gave so generously and made the appeal such a wonderful success.

Another group of students who were very busy was the Drama Club, who under the direction of their teachers, Ms Liza Hughes and Ms Roisin Mason, staged that Christmas favourite, The Grinch in the Concert Hall in early December. The proceeds of the play were used to purchase sleeping bags and other essentials which were donated to Inner City Helping Homeless. Again, a big thank you to all who contributed so generously to this cause.
