I am please to announce that our school will be hosting the Parish Christmas Nativity/Carol Service in St. Patrick's Chapel Ballymacnab this year. All our children will be involved and this event will now take place on Wednesday 6th December 2017. After consultation with our PP Father Carvill this has been moved from its traditional Sunday evening slot to the Wednesday evening. Quite fittingly the event takes place on the feast day of Saint Nicholas.

As you can see our school is a busy place. We aim to continue to provide the best quality educational experiences for your children not only now but in the future as well and I would like to thank all our educational support partners and agencies who have supported us in providing additional programmes for your children..

Warmest Regards
