We would like to congratulate our Sixth Class pupils and the pupils from Morning Star Primary School who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on May 3rd. The girls and boys were confirmed by Bishop Patrick Harrington in a beautiful ceremony in the parish church. We hope that the children and their families had a great day and that they will have lots of lovely memories of this special time in their lives.

On the evening of Wednesday April 25th a Twilight Procession was organised by the Sisters of the Presentation Congregation to celebrate the birth of their foundress, Venerable Nano Nagle, in 1718. The Twilight Lantern Walk began at the North Cathedral and processed through the city stopping at sites along the route which are central to the life story of Nano Nagle. The walk also served as a reminder of Nano’s countless journeys through the streets of Cork as she visited her schools by day and visited the poor of the city by night.

A group of children from Scoil Maria Assumpta took part in this special commemoration to celebrate Nano Nagle’s immense contribution to the education of girls and boys in the eighteenth century. It is wonderful to see that her legacy continues to the present day. The magnificently restored Nano Nagle Place was the perfect venue to mark   the tricentenary of Nano’s birth.

We are so proud of our girls who gave a sensational and truly moving rendition of ‘Touch the Sky’ in the Goldie Chapel. They later performed two dramatic pieces based on the songs, ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and ‘An Irish Blessing,’ which were sung by Anne Dunphy’s superb choir from Presentation Secondary School. We are very grateful to Tara O’Connor, our Speech and Drama teacher, who choreographed the dance routines and prepared the children so well for this most memorable event.
