A moving and spiritual carol service marked the beginning of the Christmas season in PCS. As you can see from the images the school was transformed into a magical wonderland of lights by Mr Higgins, Mr Fitzgerald and Mr Maynes. The invited guests, parents and students were treated to inspiring carols from the PCS choir led by Ms O’Driscoll and Ms McGlynn whose dedication in rehearsals made it all possible. The musicians and choir performed beautifully. Prefect elves and Santa contributed to a most memorable evening. Congratulations to Sr Ger Mullen whose lengthy preparations resulted in all present making their way home full of Christmas spirit and cheer.

During these days of Advent we are making an appeal to the school community to contribute to our food bank which will go to Brother Kevin’s Capuchin Day Centre in town. Staff, Students, Parents/Guardians are invited to contribute items of non-perishable food to the container located in the Assembly Hall. We intend to make our delivery to the Capuchin Day Centre the week beginning December 15th. Any support for this appeal will be gratefully received.
Ms O’Driscoll’s TY music class travelled to Ballymun today to visit the children of St. Margaret’s preschool. Armed with an array of instruments including bass guitar, guitar, drums, ukulele and sleigh bells, they were on a mission to spread Christmas cheer! The students performed a variety of Christmas carols to a very appreciative audience and when Santa arrived to 24 very excited children a great time was had by all, as can be seen by the accompanying photos.
