Pupils en­joy Ro­man about in Italy

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

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.
