It's with a very heavy heart that we are saying goodbye to our dear friend Brendan, who is retiring after 17 years of service as caretaker of SS Peter and Paul JNS. Brendan has seen so many members of staff come and go through the years and has always made them feel so welcome. His happy & cheerful manner has greeted hundreds of children though the gates of SS Peter & Paul. He will be sadly missed and hard to replace. We wish him every happiness in his retirement and hope that he pops over to see us once in a while.
On Wednesday we held a special concert in his honour to show how much we appreciate him. The children from each level performed either a song or a poem for him. We were blown away by their talent. They were all FANTASTIC. Poor Brendan was very emotional, as were we.
The school had a special visit on the 13th June from the BUMBLEance – the children’s national ambulance service. BUMBLEance is the world’s first interactive ambulance purposefully designed for children. It ensures that the journey of a sick child who needs ambulance transportation to and from a treatment centre and their home is as safe and comfortable as possible. Pupils had an opportunity on the morning to look around the BUMBLEance, ask questions and hear more about it’s important work. We held a fundraiser towards this worthy cause on the day.
