Arcimboldo Autumn Art

This week in G6 we have been busy collecting leaves from our school and transforming these into autumn art inspired by the Italian artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo. Arcimboldo used plants, fruits, nuts and seeds to create paintings of people.


The boys had great fun and showed real creativity to come up with fantastic portraits. Check out our pictures and video below.  IMG_1787 IMG_1773 IMG_1774 IMG_1775 IMG_1776 IMG_1777 IMG_1781

6th Class Confirmation – August 21st 2020

Dear Parents,

After consultation with the parish, we are delighted to announce that confirmation has been rescheduled for Friday the 21st of August at 5pm in Our Lady of Lourdes Church. It will be a simple, pared back ceremony in line with social distancing guidelines. The following health and safety measures will be in place for the wellbeing of all concerned.

  • Each candidate for confirmation may bring a maximum of 3 adult guests, one of whom to be the child’s sponsor
  • Each group will be given an assigned seat.
  • There will be no mass.
  • The ceremony will be performed by the parish and the bishop will not be in attendance.
  • The boys will receive the Rite of Confirmation from their seats.

It is essential that the boys produce a copy of their baptismal certificate in order to make confirmation. I know many of you have done this already but if you still need to submit a copy please do so as soon as possible. We will accept a photograph of the certificate emailed to us if you consent to send it in that format and the information contained in it will only be used for the purposes of confirmation in line with our GDPR policy.

We will be in touch at a later date with regard to order of service, preparation and seating arrangements.

As we are all aware, we live in uncertain times and the arrangements for confirmation are dependent on Road Map for Reopening Ireland going ahead as planned.

Is mise le meas,

Sarah Bradley
