With the arrival of Spring, the boys and girls of Holy Family schools, ably assisted by the Go Léir group,  have been making St. Brigid’s Crosses. These St. Brigid’s Crosses will be available at all masses in Askea this weekend. Well done everyone in maintaining this lovely tradition

We had a marvellous time at the RDS Young Scientist Exhibition with our Scratch Computer Programming Project. People were very interested in the project. We also received a lovely award for our project from the judges.
