Last Friday was the annual St. Peter’s School Sports Day. Thankfully the rain held off and the day was another great success, with great support from parents during every event.

This year, the Bray Lions Club is celebrating its 25th Anniversary with the theme of ‘Past, Present and Future’. To celebrate the present, they planned the ‘Better Bray Challenge’. The Lions Club do great work in our area and we were delighted to play our part in their community project this year, as we all work to make Bray a better place to live, work and play.

Our goal in St. Peter’s was to keep the area outside of our school grounds cleaner. We planned to do this by making the whole school aware of our goals and also by having classes pick up litter each week outside of the school grounds.

On Friday we held a Community Cake and Book Sale which was a huge success! Our Parents’ association organised the whole event and did a great job.

We were snowed under with the amount of books that were donated by parents and pupils during the week, which along with the cakes brought in, made the day an event that everybody enjoyed. It was great to see people from the community come in to our school, enjoy a cup of tea and then walk away with a handful of cakes and a box load of books!

After the success of the day, this is something we hope to repeat again in the future. A big thank you to everyone who helped organise, donate, and support the day.

To celebrate National Spring Clean Week 2013  we went to pick up rubbish in the area around the school in order to help our area to be the cleanest it can be. It is so important to take care of our environment, and the boys in St. Peter’s love to do all they can to make our area neat and rubbish-free. (more…)

Congratulations to the boys in 2nd Class who made their First Holy Communion on Saturday, 18th May. It was a great day and the boys worked so hard to prepare for it. Many thanks to Sr. Patricia for all her help all year to get the boys ready for the sacraments of First Communion and First Confession, and also to Fr. James for saying the mass and welcoming the boys to the church for the Do This In Memory of Me programme over eight Sundays since last October. Thanks to Mr. Kinsella for all his hard work with 2nd Class, the boys are very grateful for all he did for them this year and we were all so excited that he was able to be part of the day with us. Mr. Curran also deserves special thanks for his help with hanging the art and helping the class to make up the design.

We hope you like some of the pictures of the day.

Do you like our art for the altar?
