A Great Celebration of Families at Monastery NS Ardee

Catholic Schools Week is an all Ireland annual event which invites Catholic Schools to give expression in a special way to the ethos of Catholic Education. It marked the beginning of a special annual celebration in Monastery National School Ardee from the end of January to the beginning of February. The theme for the week was “Catholic Schools; Families of Faith” and each day of this special week Monastery NS pupils celebrated “Our Family at Home, “Our School Family”, “Grandparents: A Special Part of our Family”, “Our Parish Family” and “Our World Family”.

On Wednesday Monastery NS hosted its annual
Grandparents Day in all classes and over a hundred Grandparents were made feel welcome. Pupils recited prayers, poems and songs composed for their grandparents and they in turn told stories of times past in Ardee and they also told a few jokes! Some of our grandparents spoke of their strong Catholic beliefs and the importance of faith in their lives. Afterwards our grandparents enjoyed a well earned cup of tea and a bun in our school Gym and many old friends met again.

On Thursday February 1 classes took part in the making of St Brigid’s Crosses. Each day of Catholic Schools’ Week senior pupils read a reflection or
Thought for the Day over the school intercom while every teacher and pupil explored the daily themes to make our world a better place for all our families. Monastery National School looks forward to the “World Meeting of Families” and visit of Pope Francis to Dublin in August 2018.
