On behalf of all the staff, pupils and the Board of Governors we would like to wish Geraldine a very happy and healthy retirement.  Geraldine is pictured below with Fr Blayney and Mary Doherty receiving flowers at our End of Year Mass. On Wednesday 28th June the whole school came together to say goodbye to Geraldine who has been our school secretary for twenty two years. Mrs Davidson came out of retirement to read a poem summing up all the many roles that Geraldine covered. Mrs McCann and her Class performed a dance to Pharrell William's song  'Happy'.  Geraldine's grandchildren presented her with a bouquet of flowers.                    Geraldine we will all miss you!
