Fabulous Faythe 'four-timer!'

Friday 29th June saw a fabulous 'Faythe four-timer' celebrated at the school.

First up the Annual Attendance Awards were celebrated in the School Hall. Deputy Principal, Ms. Anne Griffin-Jones, presented awards to the 14 pupils who had missed no school day whatsoever during one of worst years, weather wise, in living memory.

These fourteen hardy souls were joined on stage by another ten who had only missed one day, another thirteen who had only missed two days of school while the final group of yet another thirteen pupils who had only missed three days.
Appropriate certificates and the highly prized 'Faythe Attendance Awards' pen were then presented to these 'hardy annuals.'

From the coolness of the school hall, the entire school body de-camped to the yard at the front of the school where the school's Seventh Green Flag was raised to great acclaim. Chairperson BOM, Fr. James Cullen, on what was her last day with students before her very well earned retirement, invited Ms. Griffin-Jones and Green School Committee stalwart, Sarah Pitman to help raise the flag. However all was not finished for the ever popular Ms. Giffin-Jones who was then presented with a bouquet of flowers to mark the day. This was done by Darragh Shannon, another 6th class pupil. The symbolism of having Sarah and Darragh help at these events wasn't lost on a lot of those in attendance who recalled that eight years ago when the 'refurbished' Faythe School was officially opened, that Darragh and Sarah were the Junior Infants who carried the Holy Water and helped cut the ribbon respectively. In 2018 both signed off on their 'Faythe careers' alongside a teacher who worked tirelessly and consistently for all in her care for over two decades.

To finish off, and out of the incredible summer sunshine, Ms. Rita Conroy, and two of her 'Science and Maths' team 6th Class pupil Kian French and one of this year's Infants unveiled the school's eleventh Discover Primary Science & Maths plaque outside the school hall. Fr. Cullen is worried that the BOM will have to extend the school again to make more room for displays and awards!!
