Second Form’s First Holy Communion took place on a sunny Saturday on May 6th, last. Another first that day was the fact that there were two girls to celebrate the Sacrament that day with the boys in St. Conleths! The girls were beautiful in white dresses alongside the boys in their smart blazers. Our chaplain, Fr. Fachtna celebrated mass in St. Mary’s, Haddington Road, and he has got to know the children as they progressed through the year. Parents, families, godparents, grandparents, teachers and Ms. Ann Sheppard all returned to the school afterwards for a welcome tea/coffee and lovely spread put on by the parents of 3rd Form. A memorable day for all!
The front steps of 28 Clyde Road have always been a favourite spot for the photographic capture of significant moments in the lives of Conlethians but we have to admit that those arrayed in smiling ranks have not always been the purest in mind and motive, such as the Sixth Years pausing briefly after their Graduation ceremony and before a raucous night of celebration. How refreshing to have a chance then to take the snap above, of surely the most angelic boys and girls in Greater Dublin!
