This week was very exciting for the pupils in Second Class because on Friday 15th they made their First Penance in Windgap church. The thirteen children were practicing like mad all week with Mrs Malone. Some of them had to tell the story of Zacchaeus, others had to say prayers. They also did some lovely art which is in the church. Their parents were all very proud of them. The school choir sang and we played some music when the children were telling Fr Flavin about their sins so that we could not hear.
5th & 6th class read Frank O’Connor’s story of ‘The First Confession’ during the week. We decided not to tell 2nd class about what First penance was like long ago. Second Class now have two months to prepare for their First Communion on 19th May when their hearts will be full of joy and their pockets will be full of money.
