As summer draws to a close and we start back for another year at Our Lady of Lourdes, it is my pleasure to offer a warm welcome back to all our students, teachers and staff. I hope that you all have had a relaxing, enjoyable summer and are settling back in for the year ahead. I wish you all every success in all your studies and extra-curricular activities in Our Lady of Lourdes this year.
Particularly, I would like to extend a huge welcome to our First Year students and any new students. I hope that their transition to a new school has been as smooth as possible and that their time here at Our Lady of Lourdes will be enjoyable and filled with many happy memories just as mine has.
As we begin a new academic year together I hope that each one of us can reach our full potential and see many of our goals achieved. This is especially the case in regards to my fellow sixth year students. Our time here at Our Lady of Lourdes is drawing near to an end, however, I encourage all of you to do the most to enjoy our last moments together as a year group and work hard. I wish you all the very best of luck in the Leaving Certificate and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for us. I would also like to take this chance to thanks our Deputy Head Girl Elizabeth Phelan for her continued support and I look forward to working with Elizabeth this coming year.
Lastly, I wish to extend a huge thank you to all the staff here at Our Lady Lourdes. Your hard work and dedication to your students is greatly appreciated. I would also like to welcome our new staff and I hope you have a pleasant experience here at Our Lady of Lourdes. I wish you all a happy and healthy school year ahead.
