Weekly Message from the Principal

Weekly Message from the Principal

‘No one has ever become poor by giving.’

Anne Frank

Teachers, staff, parents and most importantly the boys of Willow thank you sincerely for all of your hard work, support, respect and kindness you have shown throughout the second term. I was visited by two lovely school children Darcy Cloake and Sophie Copeland from Presentation Primary Warrenmount and their teacher Ms. Niamh Ring on Wednesday of this week and was presented with a fantastic book of gratitude made by the children in the Primary school. This thank you book was given to the school because of the kindness shown during Christmas with our annual Toy appeal and the books that we collected and handed over to their school library.

It is genuinely a privilege to be Principal of a school where one has the chance to experience Arts Week and the Father Gavin Rugby festival. In particular, our Sixth Form leaders setting the example of respect, manners and kindness on our opening night of Arts Week through to Songs in the Park on Thursday evening to then representing our school perfectly on Saturday. I must also thank Mr. Eddie Barron and the army of parental volunteers who made Saturday such a success by giving so much of your own valuable time and expertise in making it such a memorable day. However, I must pay particular thanks to two fine Sixth Form men who carried every item of equipment on and off the stage during Songs in the Park - Mr. James Kennedy and Mr. Ruari Houlihan our sincere thanks for all of your hard work on Thursday evening it did not go unnoticed.

But my biggest thank you is saved for Ms. Cliona Sherwin who created the relationship with Presentation Primary Warrenmount and a huge thank you to all 206 children within your wonderful school. I have copied some of your messages to share with our community in Willow. Please read them below:

Books inspire us as we create our own story!

Thank you for your generosity from Fourth Form. Somewhere inside of us is the power to change the world.

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.

Thank you from Sixth class….

If you wish to see this book it is taking pride of place in Father Gavin’s trophy cabinet.

I hope all Willow families have a happy, safe, enjoyable Easter break.
