The Pope John Paul II Award is a faith achievement award for young people between the ages of 16 and 18. It is a non-competitive, inclusive, flexible and voluntary award.
A group of students from Bush Post Primary school recently completed the John Paul ll Award.
To achieve this award, the students had to complete 20 hours of voluntary community work and 20 hours of parish work.
Congratulations to Aaron Carolan, Michael John Hanlon, Niamh Hanlon, Maeve White, Adam Bolton, Leah Coyle, Olive Thornton-Matthews and Emily Ward. These students should be very proud of their achievements. Well done to all involved.
Four of the students, Aaron Carolan, Michael John Hanlon, Niamh Hanlon and Maeve White travelled to Lourdes as young carers with the Armagh Arch Diocese assisting the sick and elderly. They really enjoyed the experience.
