I would really love to hear from parents who´ve sent their church of Ireland child to a convent. I respect the fact that the school is a Catholic school and that it has a Catholic ethos, but I´m just wondering what it would be like from my daughter´s perspective. Would she feel awkward? What percentage of girls at a convent would be non-Catholic these days? I imagine she wouldn´t be the only one. But still, at that age they don´t like to be different. It´s not a visible difference of course. Thank you for any comments.
