Communion and First PenanceCongratulations to 2nd class who celebrated the sacrament of Communion on the 6th April 2019 and had their First Penance on the the 5th of April.

The study of Andy WarholAndy Warhol was the most successful and highly paid commercial illustrator in New York even before he began to make art destined for galleries. Nevertheless, his screenprinted images of Marilyn Monroe, soup cans, and sensational newspaper stories, quickly became synonymous with Pop art.Warhol’s early commercial illustration has recently been acclaimed as the arena in which he first learned to manipulate popular tastes. His drawings were often comic, decorative, and whimsical, and their tone is entirely different from the cold and impersonal mood of his Pop art.Students from first and second class not only learned all about Andy Warhol, they took on the task to re-create their own version of pop art.

The children’s donation is funding research in childhood illnesses such as cardiac diseases, cystic fibrosis & asthma so they can understand and limit the effects on children and increase their quality of life.
