Annual 6th year Retreat Sleepover: 21 December 2017

The 6th years had their Retreat Sleepover on Thursday 21 December after their Christmas tests. They had a busy night. After their pizza and Father William's departure, the students prepared 'mother and baby' hospital bags, under the guidance of Ms Crowley, Ms Ní Mhuineacháin and Ms A O'Neill. Everybody was delighted that Ms Cassidy dropped in for a quick visit during the night, along with Ms Fields, Mr Beirne and Mrs Arthurs. After breakfast, Ms Crowley and some students went to the Capuchin Day Centre where Father Seán happily accepted the Manor House donations. These included food hampers (provided by students in all years), underwear and socks (provided by the 5th years), the 'mother and baby' bags (from the 6th years) and the money collected during the Christmas Hat and Jumper day (€1180). Well done to everyone!

As part of Catholic Schools' Week, Fr Paddy Moran CSSp met with all of the 1st years on Friday to give them a presentation about his missionary work with prisoners in Ethiopia. As it was the Feast Day of St Blaise on 3 February, he ended by blessing the throats of all of the 1st years. Here is a link to the RTE Nationwide programme about Fr Paddy's work. Thanks to Mr Abrahamian for organising the visit.

6th year Project

For 'Friendship Week' 2016, a group of 6th years wrote a 'lovely letter' to each of our 1st years. These letters welcome and encourage our new girls as they start their journey in Manor House. Thanks to Mr Abrahamian who came up with the idea and ensured that it was carried through.
