A display celebrating the faith life of the school was unveiled in the school on Tuesday 23 January. On Sunday 27 January, five John Paul II Award pupils participated in the World Youth Day Mass in Armagh Cathedral and, throughout this week, assemblies focused on the theme of Catholic Schools Week 2019 will be delivered by pupils from each year group.
