As a cel­e­bra­tion of Christ­mas 2012 and to mark the end of the school term, stu­dents and staff of our school took part in a carol ser­vice on Fri­day 21st De­cem­ber. The school choir sang many tra­di­tional favourites and were ac­com­pa­nied by sev­eral of our tal­ented stu­dent mu­si­cians. Many thanks to Ms Mad­den and Ms Arm­strong for their work in pre­par­ing for this event which is such a fo­cal point in our school cal­en­dar.

Many thanks also to all those who at­tended the re­cent Christ­mas carol ser­vice in Kil­coole church. The CCA Tran­si­tion year choir was joined by the choir from Kil­coole pri­mary school, for a beau­ti­ful sea­sonal ser­vice, at­tended by many mem­bers of our schools and lo­cal com­mu­nity. CHRIST­MAS EX­AMS

Well done to our stu­dents who have com­pleted their end of term ex­ams. This is an im­por­tant time of year for as­sess­ment and fo­cus on study habits for our stu­dents. Many thanks to all teach­ers for their work on pre­par­ing stu­dents through­out the term, and to par­ents for their on­go­ing sup­port of stu­dents and the school. ST VIN­CENT DE PAUL HAM­PERS

Well done to the Tran­si­tion Year stu­dents who co­or­di­nated this year’s St Vin­cent de Paul Christ­mas Ham­per ap­peal.
