The pupils of Kiltealy National School were busy preparing for Grandparent’s Day and Saint Brigid’s Day. All off the pupils made St. Brigid Crosses and completed project work on St. Brigid. Poetry and art work for Grandparents was also completed and put on display.

Mass was celebrated on 3/02/17, for Grandparents and St Brigid. The mass was prepared by 3rd and 4th class, who worked on the theme, readings, prayers of the faithful and offertory procession. Music and choir was provided by the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th class.

Refreshments were provided in Kiltealy School after the celebration. Grandparents and families enjoyed a cup of tea while looking at the pupils work and chatting to staff.

Thank you to Fr. Morris who celebrated a very special Mass with us today. Today as a school community we received a very special blessing for the year ahead. Each child went home with their own very special bottle of Holy Water.
