Best wishes are extended to all our P.7 pupils who will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday afternoon.  The Sacrament, this year, will be administered by Monsignor Donnelly in the absence of an appointment of our new bishop.  The Sacrament commences at 3.00pm in theSacredHeartChurch.  All pupils and sponsors will have reserved seats but all parents and other family members will have to find their own seats.  For that reason, it is highly recommended to arrive in good time, with 2.30pm having been suggested by the priests.  There will be tea and light refreshments served afterwards in St. Joseph’s Hall with an opportunity for a family photograph.  We trust all families will have a memorable day and that the pupils involved will embrace the gifts of the Holy Spirit to give them guidance for the years ahead.


As mentioned last week, our school along with pupils from All Saints P.S. have been asked to provide the choir for Saturday’s sacrament.  Another choir practice has been organised for tomorrow afternoon after Drama and we ask that as many pupils as possible can attend this practice until 5.15pm.

On Saturday pupils are asked to be in attendance from 2.30pm wearing their school uniform.  We thank you in advance for your co-operation.


Thursday is World Book Day and a number of activities have been planned within the school to mark this occasion.  Pupils in Mrs Breen and Mrs McHugh’s classes are invited to dress up as their favourite book character on this day.  This is purely for fun and there is no competitive aspect to this so please do not go to any expense for this activity.

Pupils from P.4-P.7 have other book related activities planned for Thursday to make it a fun day for all.


Pupils in P.6 and P.7 will visit Omagh Leisure Complex on Thursday morning for a

‘Fun in Athletics Day’.  All pupils must bring a change of clothing but as pupils will be back in school for dinner time, no packed lunch is required.


As mentioned last week, the school is closed this Wednesday (29th Feb) for a Development Day.  This probably seems very soon after the mid-term break but was a date over which we had no control.


All tokens for the Titanic competition must be submitted to the school by tomorrow for submission to the Irish News.


Congratulations are extended to our Student Teacher, Mr Stephen Mullan, who was on the Omagh U-21 team who claimed the Ulster Club title yesterday afternoon – quite an achievement!! Well Done Stephen.
