Rory and Daniel interview about the rugby tournament.
On 11th May at Raven hill in Belfast, 13 boys from Holy Family attended a rugby tournament. They met 5 famous Ulster Rugby players. They got told the teams in their pool table. It started at 12.30pm. Holy Family’s first game was at 12.50pm. In the first game they got beaten by Campbell College the giants of rugby but in the end they tried their best. In the second match they played a team from County Derry who beat Holy Family but Daniel Campbell got the first try of the game. Then they had a lunch break which lasted for10 minutes. Then they played the last game of the day against a very difficult team. Iuri Niza and Nathan Proudlove scored tries. Then the players gathered their belongs and headed home. Holy Family came as a team and left as a team!

Orla and Annal report on First Holy Communion.
Hi, this is Orla & Anna and we’re here to tell you about First Holy Communion that happened just last Saturday, which we both attended as our brother and sister were taking part in the ceremony and we were singing in the choir. At the beginning of the ceremony the priests, altar servers and all the P4s walked up the middle aisle, took their place on the altar and sang ‘Everybody’s Welcome’ to start the ceremony. The had actions taught to them by the P4 teachers, Miss Diamond, Mrs Dillon and Mrs McDermott.
All the P4s had a very important part in the ceremony – some read, some sang, some drew pictures, some did the offertory and everyone did what they had to do very well.
To conclude our report on First Holy Communion we would just like to say that the girls looked lovely in their dresses and the boys looked very handsome in their chosen outfits. We hope everyone had a lovely day, whether it was going to ‘The Terrace’ or going to ‘Las Vegas’! Thank you for reading our report and congratulations to all the p4s who made their ‘First Holy Communion’….
Darragh and Cianan report on our recent football tournament
On Tuesday 15th May A few P7’s and P6’s went to Rossa Park to compete in a Gaelic blitz. We had two teams Team A and Team B. In this blitz all schools played at least three games each. The schools there were Derrychrin, Newrow, St.Trea’s, Loup, St.John Bosco’s, Lissan and of course the two Holy Family P.S teams! The blitz started at ten o’ clock and ended at two o’ clock. When we got there we had to get changed from our shoes into our boots. We then played two matches each before having a short break. After this we played our final match before leaving. Team A, after playing all their matches, won all THREE, but Team B didn’t do so well losing all of them….. But we still had a great time!
