Congratulations to our 6th Years who celebrated their Graduation Mass Tuesday evening. We wish you every success in your future. It has been a pleasure teaching you all over the past number of years. Thank you to Fr. Declan and the Ethos committee for making the mass so memorable and special. Thank you to our very talented musicians and singers who provided beautiful music for the mass.
Commiserations to our second year basketball team in yesterday’s All Ireland final against Coachford College. An agonizing 36-33 loss in a titanic battle in the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght. An incredible achievement by this group of girls to finish runners up in Ireland on what was a very successful year. Everyone in our school community is very proud of you and we have no doubt they’ll be back stronger next year.
Wellbeing Week in Pres. Listowel shines a light on Daffodil Day
The students and staff of Presentation Secondary, Listowel recently raised much needed funds for Daffodil Day 2022. The amount generously raised was an amazing €500 which will go towards supporting cancer patients and their families. It has been great to shine a light on Daffodil day which promoted collegiality and community spirit among the whole school community. The activities planned included a staff lunch where staff prepared the food served and students sold Daffodil day pins and badges etc. Well done and many thanks to all involved and to all who supported this great cause.
Fifth year students had the fantastic experience of meeting with Bishop Ray Browne today. Bishop Ray visited Presentation Secondary School, Listowel as part of the SYNOD listening sessions. Pope Francis has invited us all to contribute to the renewal of the church and to begin the process of synodality, which means moving into the future by listening to all members of the church especially those who have been marginalised. Pope Francis has said it is especially important to listen to the voice of young people and so Bishop Ray joined us today to hear our students’ view and their experience of Church.
