St Columba's Yeoval

A New Year at St Columba’s

The students at St Columba’s bounded into school on the first day and were very excited about beginning the new school year, especially our new Kinder children.

This year, our Kinder class consists of Charlie Lees, Aidan Simister, Paddy Iffland, Willa Kerin and Chloe Hughes. We welcome the children to St Columba’s and look forward to seeing what amazing things they will achieve in their time here.

Fr Carl Mackander celebrated our opening school Mass on Sunday 18th February, when Mrs Brown presented Year 3 students with their Junior Josephite badge.

Everyone at St Columba’s is looking forward to a great year ahead.

Confirmation in Yeoval

On 19th August, parishioners at St Mary’s Church, Yeoval joined the St. Columba’s School community in a special Saturday Vigil Mass to celebrate with Amelia Vaughan and Caleb Vickers as they were sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Bishop McKenna expressed his delight at being in Yeoval and he certainly showed this by personally speaking with many at the supper afterwards. A special thank you to Fr Carl Mackander for his guidance, support and commendations.
