The Sixth Class Boys of Scoil Mhuire Millstreet BNS on Monday, 21st June 2021 presented their Teacher/Principal Frank O Connor with a splendid Slate Clock which is beautifully inscribed. This special gesture coming close to the end of the School Year was made in recognition of Mr. O’Connor’s tremendous support, dedication and inspiration which he and his dedicated Staff accorded all the Pupils during what was a truly challenging year with COVID-19 restrictions. The Parents of the Pupils are indeed most grateful also for Mr. O’Connor’s uplifting guidance and patient approach and that of his Staff and wish to extend heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the entire School Staff of Scoil Mhuire BNS, Millstreet. We wish every success and happiness to All in the years ahead. Tap on the images below to enlarge…..which were kindly made available by Michelle. (S.R.)
