Our school chaplain, Father Martin, has arranged Mass on Wednesday and Friday mornings at 8.30am as usual and for pupils whose buses arrive after morning mass, Fr Martin has also organised masses for Monday, Tuesday and Thursdays lunchtimes at 12.55.
Staff and pupils are also making up parcels for gifts around our local community.
While some of our annual celebrations have been affected by the weather, Christmas is in full swing at OLHS.
Christmas parties were very successful and S1 went to see Aladdin at the SECC. 6th year held their annual party for the pupils of Clydeview School and pupils and staff have nominated senior citizens to be invited for a special lunch. RE classes have gathered toiletries to create parcels for homeless people and staff have also collected chocolates and biscuits for the elderly.
Our School Chaplain, Fr Frank King, has been celebrating Advent mass in the Memorial Chapel every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and year group services will be taking place in the last week of term. All pupils will have the opportunity to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
All the staff and pupils of Our Lady’s High School, Motherwell, wish everyone a peaceful and happy Christmas.
The creator of this year’s OLHS official Christmas card competition is S1 pupil, Wiktoria Betka. For more information please see Ms Steinert’s blog.
