It was wonderful to welcome so many of our third class pupils’ grandparents to our Senior School hall this afternoon for Grandparents’ Day!

An initiative of Catholic Schools Week, Grandparents’ Day provides a great opportunity for pupils, teachers and grandparents to gather, chat and share stories and experiences from the ‘olden days’.

St Patrick’s BNS last hosted this event in 2019 so it was extra special to have the chance to celebrate it again today after a three-year break due to Covid.

As well as a blessing from Fr Paul, Ms Bassett also spoke to the group and shared some of the rich history of St Pat’s.

Beautifully decorated tables provided the perfect space for guests and their grandsons to chat and enjoy the fine selection of sandwiches, treats, tea, coffee and soft drinks on offer; all prepared by our wonderful Parents’ Association.

Special mention to Ms McKevitt’s and Mr Williams’ boys who have been busy doing lots of art and writing activities in preparation for today’s event. Their grandparent interviews led to many interesting conversations and their behaviour throughout the afternoon was exemplary. We’re all really proud of them.

Thanks again to all the grandparents, the pupils, and the PA volunteers, for making today such a success! Roll on 2024!
