St Patrick’s Day

St Patrick's Day Celebrations

 

St Patrick’s Day is an important event on our school calendar for more reasons than one. It is a day to wear green and celebrate the Irish Patron Saint but it is also the day that our Social Justice Team make green cups, green cookies, pancakes and jellies to share. We sell the treats at recess to help raise funds for Caritas.

Caritas is Latin for love + compassion – two qualities which are central to their work and something that we help to promote through our Social Justice Team. Thank-you to everyone who sent along food to share and for helping to make it such a fabulous day!
