Thursday Letter 18th May 2017

Dear Parents and Guardians / A Thuismitheoirí agus a Chaomhnóirí,

 We began our week on a very sad note with the funeral of Nicola Woods. Our thoughts are with Peter and all the family, and we take inspiration from Maisy, a brave little light in our lives.

Donations to Willows CancerCare can be made using the collection box in the office.
