Celebrating St. Brigid's Day
To mark St. Brigid's Day, our Ember leaders joined forces with our first-year students for a hands-on and creative session. Together, they participated in the age-old tradition of crafting St. Brigid's crosses using natural reeds. This hands-on experience not only connected our students with the rich cultural and historical significance of St. Brigid but also allowed them to express their creativity and teamwork under the guidance of our enthusiastic Ember leaders. It's heartening to see these connections being made within our school.
