The past week has been a very eventful one where wonderful celebrations took place in our catholic schools in Abbeyleix & Ballyroan. Ethos, is something that is felt and permeates itself throughout the entire school community. Catholic ethos at its heart is about inclusivity, diversity and the respect of the entire human person. A sincere word of appreciation to our teachers and staff for their wonderful generosity in their roles as educators. I would also like to acknowledge all our members on our Bord of Managements and pray blessing as they begin their new term. May our schools continue to grow in love and kindness.
