Screen N.S. celebrated Grandparents' Day recently as part of Catholic Schools' Week. The school welcomed almost 200 grandparents to a special prayer service in St. Cyprian's Church, Screen, which was officiated by Fr. Denis Kelly.

All the children joined with Fr. Kelly in blessing their grandparents by holding out their hands over them. This was a great moment in the church.

All the grandparents were invited into the school for tea, coffee and refreshments before visiting their grandchildren in their classrooms. There were maths demonstrations, home made board games, CRC demonstrations, artwork, displays and many more things for all to see. A great day was had by all, with many grandparents wishing they were attending Screen School today!
