Y5/6 French Observation - July 2016

"I thought the level of French for the Y5 group particularly was impressive. Also, I was really impressed by how confident they were at speaking and the emphasis given to speaking. The atmosphere in your lessons was also very positive and students were clearly keen to contribute. Behaviour was excellent as well despite the heat! Overall I have to say I was really impressed by the levels in both groups and what you are doing with them is clearly working. I was also impressed by how they could remember things without looking at their notes!"
Greg Bricage (Head of Languages at Mount St Mary's High School)

"A huge thank you to all of you at St. Francis of Assisi for making me feel so welcome on Friday.

Inter Faith Event - Nov 2014

"Just a big word of thanks for coming along to the Merrion Centre with the children on Tuesday. Given the event was in a commercial/retail centre, the presence of the choir went a long way to breaking down the barriers and catching passers by attention. It also gave a sense of celebration to the whole event. So thanks for taking the trouble and do pass my thanks onto the children."
