On the evening of 24th November, a very special occasion was held in our school hall as the Board of Management and PTA hosted a reception to mark the retirement of a much loved and respected teacher, colleague and friend - Bláithín Fitzmaurice. The evening was attended by current and past members of the school community, as well as some member of St Patrick's Parish.
This reception was an opportunity to celebrate Bláithín an her career-long dedication to our school. Having noted an element of trepidation in advance of the evening, Bláithín had been promised no formalities. There was a warm and somewhat nostalgic atmosphere as old and new friends mingled, and the guest of honour thoroughly enjoyed meeting pupils, parents, colleagues and friends, some of whom she had not seen for quite a while!!
