We have been preparing for confirmation over the past few months. This year we have gone to two confirmation ceremonies. The first one was an Enrolment mass and the second mass was The Mass of the Holy Spirit. In school we have been preparing for our confirmation by doing our artwork. You can see it on display in our hall.
In early October 2017, Conor came in every Friday for eight weeks. At the start we played some games. Next we worked on jumping up and catching the ball we also worked on kicking and passing the ball to other people. At the end we were divided into two teams and played a match. After the eight weeks we went to a Gaelic match. We played against two teams. But we didn't get through to the next round. We will try again next year.
