I hope you all enjoyed a good break and had a Happy and Holy Easter.
We are now back into a routine and SQA exams are well under way. Last Wednesday was the last day for our S4/5/6 pupils before the start of the exams and marked the last day for our S6 pupils. We had the usual shirt signing at the start off the day and then a lovely Mass along with families and and friends celebrated by Fr McPhail. This was followed by a buffet. It was a great end to their time in the school for the pupils and we will certainly miss them about the place. Once the exams are out the way, just the prom to look forward to!
Before the holidays we had a number of pupils take part in the North Lanarkshire Schools Concert in the Glasgow Concert Hall. Once again this was a fabulous evening with so much talent on display. Performing at the concert was the NL Schools Pipe Band who then went on to perform in New York and went viral with a performance in Grand Central station. We were very proud to see two of our own pupils as part of that – Ewan and Mollie. Well done!
On Holy Thursday some S6 pupils joined many parishioners from across the diocese for the Chrism Mass in the Cathedral. We also had 8 of our pupils taking an active role by serving at this Mass.
A number of pupils recently had a great opportunity to head to Manchester for a tour of Old Trafford and to watch the Manchester United vs Manchester City derby. The had a great day and got to watch an exciting game with City beating their rivals 2-0.
