Green School Flag Review
Dean Eaton from Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council came in to to review our application for our 6th Green Flag for Global Citizenship: Litter and Waste On Thursday. He was blown away by the responses and work of the Green School Committee who represented the whole school in the hour long review meeting. He commended all the hard work that has been done over the last 18 months learning about the meaning of Global Citizenship, Fair Trade and ways in which we can improve our Global responsibility towards Litter and Waste. He was so impressed with all he saw and heard that he left the school feeling very confident about us being awarded with our next green flag.
6th Class Service of Light
The 6th Class boys and girls from both Our Lady of Mercy and St Marys Boys School celebrated the next part of their Confirmation Journey with their Service of Light and Commitment on Monday night .It was a very special celebration where the light of faith was passed from parent to child in a reverend and spiritual way. Thanks to the 5th class boys and girls for adding to the whole occasion with their beautiful singing.
Last week, Jan 28th -Feb 3rd was Catholic Schools Week, when Catholic schools all over the country celebrated the ethos of Catholic education. The theme for this year's celebration was ‘ Called to be a Family of Families’. Here in Our Lady of Mercy, we reflected on and celebrated our faith with classes attending morning Mass in the church and finishing the week with a whole school assembly lead by the girls in 5th Class.
We had a fantastic week to mark Healthy Living and Eating Week.
