Pupils and staff of Lourdes Secondary celebrated the Feast Day of Our Lady of Lourdes on Friday the 8th of February with the Most Reverand Archbishop Philip Tartaglia. Mass for S1 and S6 was concelebrated by the Archbishop, Monsignor Gilmartin and school chaplain Father John Carroll.
Invited guests included Head Teachers from our associated primaries, our Student Council and members of the Parent Council. The Archbishop spoke of his “closeness” to the community of Lourdes Secondary and encouraged pupils to “listen to Jesus”.
After Mass, the Archbishop joined invited guests and S6 Caritas pupils for a celebratory lunch. A number of liturgical and fun events took place throughout the day to mark this important event in the school calendar.
Today Lourdes Secondary School turned pink in support of breast cancer research. Pupils were invited to wear something pink and volunteers from the Higher Leadership class teamed up with members of staff to raise awareness.
Amongst the festivities, there was a Teacher’s Blind Date, nail bar, bake sale and pink lemonade stall!
Overall, the day was a huge success and a great time was had by all. Thanks to the tremendous effort and hard work of staff and pupils, a total of £1,137.11 was raised.
