As you may already be aware, this year’s 2nd class pupils will make their First Holy Communion on Saturday 12th of May. As per previous years, tea and cakes will be served to the families of the First Holy Communion pupils after mass at the school. Traditionally, this social gathering is hosted by the parents of the 1st class pupils from each of the local schools, with the help of 3rd class parents.
Parents are requested to provide baking and sandwiches, to be delivered to school the morning of First Holy Communion. As well as helping out on the day of the Communion, to lay out all the food and to serve coffee and tea, help is also required on the Friday evening (11th of May) to set up the tables, etc.
From past experience we find that this event runs most efficiently if there is a dedicated representative from 1st and/or 3rd class who can co-ordinate everything with the 1st and 3rd class parents. The person best suited for this role would be somebody who has been involved in a Communion in the past. If you are interested in helping to co-ordinate this year’s event please contact a Cairdeas committee member or reach out through the class group text facility.
As always, Cairdeas committee members will be available to provide help and advice on how best to ensure that the event is as successful as in previous years.
Please add this important date to your diaries.
