The assembly hall at school was a sea of rushes last Tuesday as the sixth class pupils helped all the pupils in the school to make a cross to mark the start of Spring and the feast day of our patron ,Saint Brigid .

Father Kieran came down to bless the crosses before all the children brought them home to their families and friends .

Here are a few photos from the day .
