Nurturing the self worth
and potential of all…
Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School is a school dedicated to making a valued difference in the lives of our children. We trust that when people look back at the time spent in our school they cherish fond memories of a genuine and faithful community, ‘Under God’s Protection’ always.
It is difficult to believe that this is the final newsletter for the year. In years to come we will look back on 2020 with a sense of bewilderment and disbelief. Who would have thought, this time last year, that we would experience such a tumultuous year, along with our brothers and sisters in the world-wide community. As we approach these final few weeks before Christmas we have much to be grateful for. We are reminded of the innocent and vulnerable little baby, Jesus, born into such humble surrounds, who would grow up to become the Saviour of the world. Jesus, who experienced a tumultuous start to life, in a refugee family fleeing to Egypt for safety in his formative years, experienced great hardships and challenges, and yet he was always able to witness the joy of a life in unity with Christ. I wish all our Matthew Gibney Catholic Primary School families and friends a happy, joyful and Christ filled Christmas with loved ones.
