The evening of Wednesday, December 6 was special for the community of Chickland, as the Chickland RC Primary hosted the blessing of the crèche. Through the initiative of Maria Bonaparte, senior teacher, and the support of other teachers, parents and pupils, the evening was symbolic in more ways than one as the community came out to show its support.
Pupils trained by Bonaparte sang Christmas carols, the Gospel reading was shared, the history of the crèche was delivered by pupils, and Anthony Boodasingh blessed the crèche and led us in prayer. The evening culminated with the sharing of refreshments.
It was indeed a joy to witness and experience the support of parents, to enjoy the enthusiasm of the children, and to see stakeholders coming together for a common cause. – Deryck Deane, Principal
