The House of St Cecilia,  celebrated their house feast  honouring their patron saint of music. The assembly area was decorated in blue, the house colour and the colour of Mary whose presentation was also celebrated on that day. Students and House parents prepared the assembly  and  parents helped with the house feast; thus making the celebration extra special.
