Christmas Wishing Tree

As a school community, we were delighted to welcome and adore our first Christmas Wishing Tree to the school. The Parents’ Association have been working very hard to bring this idea to life. We now have a beautiful 16 ft Christmas Tree in our play area for all our pupils to admire. We were delighted to welcome Fr. Tom Cooper to bless our new tree today. Each of our 204 pupils received a label to decorate and place on the tree as a hopeful wish for the festive period and the year ahead. Thank you to Liam Byrne (parent) for providing the music entertainment and to Elaine Fitzpatrick (Chairperson P.A.) for speaking to the pupils about the meaning behind the Wishing Tree. Thank you to our local business, The Christmas Tree Farm, for their kind donation of a tree and erecting the beautiful tree on site for us. To mark this occasion, Sophie Burke (Junior Infants) & Laurence O’Connor (Sixth Class) the eldest and youngest pupils in our school, switched on the lights on the tree. Lets hope some wishes come true!!
