The pupils of Star of the Sea said their goodbyes to our school traffic warden Ms. Patsy Aherne on Friday the 16th of November. Patsy has been associated with Star of the Sea for over 20 years, serving as our school traffic warden for 18 years.
Patsy was always cheerful, helpful and very dedicated. At her surprise celebration to mark her retirement, the pupils recounted their lovely stories of times when upset or crying, Patsy looked after them until parents came. Parents Association Chairperson, Mrs. Gwen McCarthy, warmly thanked Patsy for her years of dedicated service and made a presentation to her.
Patsy was delighted with her celebrations and presentations. We will miss Patsy but wish her a long and happy retirement.
