Pupils enjoy Roman about in Italy
Taylor High sent 30 pupils on a pilgrimage to Rome to visit the major historical and religious sites.
The S5/S6 youngsters were accompanied by three members of staff and the school chaplain, Fr Martin Delaney.
Highlights of the trip included mass celebrated by Fr Martin in St Peter’s and the opportunity to attend a papal audience. Visits to the Colosseum and the Roman Forum were also memorable.
Everyone also got the chance to enjoy the Italian gelato (ice cream) and take in a day at the beach in Nettuno, site of a large-scale landing of Allied troops during World War Two. The weather was fantastic and the young people had a great time, with the many getting pictures of Pope Francis before he celebrated mass.
A school spokesperson said:“this was a great experience, and thanks go to Mrs Caroline Convery, Mrs Colette Brown, Mr Martin Mcmahon and Fr Martin Delaney for their involvement in this fantastic trip.”
Meanwhile, all pupils are being asked to contribute to the Mary’s Meals Backpack Appeal. Caritas students have delivered presentations.
