We would like to welcome all staff and students back to school as we begin a new term. It will be a busy term for 6th and 3rd year students as they commence their mock exams. Transition year students will embark on a very exciting chapter as they go out into the world of work for three weeks of work experience.
Today, January 6th we celebrate the Epiphany, commemorating the Three Wise Men visit to the baby Jesus. The feast of the Epiphany reassures us that all are called and all are welcome in the presence of the Lord.
In Ireland, the final twelfth day of Christmas ( January 6th) is also known as Nollaig na mBan. Traditionally women gathered together socially to enjoy each other’s company on the last day of Christmas.
So today we celebrate all women who speak up for us, who care and listen to us and who raise up other women, who contribute to their communities and families in powerful ways. On this day we celebrate the strong inspirational women in our lives….and we remember those who are no longer with us and those who paved the way and worked so hard to gain some basic rights that we as women enjoy today.
Nollaig na mBan daoibh go léir.
