Master Colton's Retirement Mass

10th Apr 2019

On Wednesday, 3rd April, 2019, we celebrated Master Stephen Colton's Retirement.  After teaching in our school for 28 years, we reminisced about his time in our school, with current and past pupils and celebrated with a Thanksgiving Mass, presentations and refreshments.  During the Mass, the choir sang some beautiful hymns, Fr. McGahon spoke about Masters time at St. Patrick's and some artwork, which was created by the children, was displayed on the altar.  After Mass, Mrs. McCallan, Mrs. Harte, Members of the B.O.G, past pupils and present, spoke about Masters career and wished him well.  Many gifts were presented including, an elegant, bespoke birdhouse, ornaments for his garden, many vouchers and most importantly a box of Tayto Cheese and Onion crisps (Masters guilty pleasure). Master had a wonderful night and spoke fondly of his time teaching in Eskra. We wish Master all the best and hope he enjoys his retirement.
