Newsletter team to take a well deserved break

This weekend is the final issue of the Harbour Newsletter before the newsletter team take a well deserved break for the summer months.  We are in indebted to Mary and Cathy who put the Newsletter together each week and keep us informed of everything that is happening in our community.  They help us stay connected.  Thanks to all who help distribute the newsletter each week.  We look forward to our Newsletter’s return in September.


Good luck to everyone undertaking exams

On behalf of everyone in our community we wish the best of luck to everyone undertaking their Junior Cert and Leaving Cert exams over the coming weeks.  Exams can be and often are an anxious time.  Remember that exams do not define you, nor do they determine your future. If there is something you truly wish to pursue in life and are willing to work hard for it, then there will always be more than one road, one course or one opportunity to help you achieve your goal.  Believe in yourself, trust in the power of your best efforts and look to the future with a sense of hope. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers over the coming month. We wish you the best in your exams, but even more importantly, we wish you happiness and fulfilment in whatever will be the next step of your journey in life.                                                                                                       

Life is the most difficult exam. 

Many people fail by trying to copy others -

not realising that everyone has a different question paper.  [Anon]
