Welcome Back!

The first week of school was a big success having students back in the building! The joy and energy the students shared was a reminder of why we love our jobs. Thank you to all of our families for helping us make the return to school a safe and happy one. We appreciate the support you are providing and the trust you are granting us as we welcome your precious children back. The staff have been working extremely hard to ensure our students are loved, nurtured, and kept safe. By continuing to work together we will ensure we have a safe and exciting school year!


Mrs. Aoife Cahill, Principal at Holy Spirit Catholic School
