In January 2018, Catholic Schools Week was celebrated. The theme this year was ‘Family’. Each day throughout this week carried its own individual message and reflection for both the children and the adults. This theme is particularly relevant this year with the confirmed attendance of Pope Francis coming to Dublin, Ireland in August 2018. Each mornings assembly provided the children with a ‘thought for the day’ and an opportunity to discuss their own families in class with their teacher and how each family unit maybe different and unique but we are all part of the family of God.
