St. Ger­ard’s School

Bray People - - SCHOOLS REPORT -


Our an­nual Bazaar took place prior to the Christ­mas hol­i­days with the pro­ceeds from the event be­ing do­nated to lo­cal and na­tional char­i­ties. The Bazaar is al­ways a great success which is due is no small part to the un­con­di­tional sup­port from pupils, staff, par­ents and friends of the St. Ger­ard’s School com­mu­nity. We grate­fully ac­knowl­edge the help and con­tin­ued sup­port of all con­cerned and for their gen­er­ous do­na­tions to the Auc­tion, Tombola, Raf­fles and the var­i­ous stands and stalls. CHRIST­MAS HAM­PERS

An­other pre-Christ­mas ac­tiv­ity of note is the St. Vin­cent de Paul School Con­fer­ence ef­fort in co­or­di­nat­ing, pack­ing and de­liv­ery of 350 Christ­mas Ham­pers to our lo­cal St. Vin­cent de Paul. With the as­sis­tance of our Tran­si­tion Years the ham­pers were packed and de­liv­ered with great ded­i­ca­tion and the en­deavor is a truly up­lift­ing ex­pe­ri­ence for all con­cerned. JOHN PAUL II MEDALS

A num­ber of our stu­dents from 5th Year re­ceived Pope John Paul II Awards re­cently. The Medal is awarded to those who un­der­take to be­come more ac­tively in­volved in the life of their par­ish and com­mu­nity. Tak­ing an ac­tive part en­ables the par­tic­i­pants ex­pe­ri­ence the con­tent­ment and ful­fil­ment that comes from serv­ing oth­ers, es­pe­cially those in great need. We con­grat­u­late our 5th Years, Claire Byrne, Leah Flana­gan, Grace Looby, Aine Mc­Cabe and Aoife Kenna (Class of 2012) who re­ceived their John Paul II Medal. ECO­NOM­ICS SO­CI­ETY
