FCJ Bicentenary Celebration
A chairde, As you are all aware we are celebrating the bicentenary of the FCJ congregation this year. March 30th, tomorrow, is the 200th Anniversary of our founding day. We had planned a whole school activity to celebrate this very important day but due to the current pandemic of the Coronavirus we have had to change our plans. The plan was to take a photograph using the whole school community spelling out the words FCJ 1820-2020. Please see the attached picture for an example. Now that we are all at home it is time to get creative. We want you to design your own FCJ 1820-2020 design using items at home. There will be a prize for the best three photographs. All photographs are to be emailed to email@example.com by Tuesday, 31st March at 10.00am. We look forward to seeing all your photographs. Hope you are all staying safe. Le meas, Ms. Ní Anragáin ￼
