We are very proud that the head of the Roman Catholic Church in England & Wales, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, was a pupil at our school.

Today we celebrated our school's saints' feast day with Mass in the hall.

C.A.F.O.D.

On Friday 28th April, we welcomed Ged Edwards from C.A.F.O.D. Liverpool to our assembly. He gratefully received a cheque for £1635.87 which was raised on our C.A.F.O.D. Market Day during Lent. He explained that small amounts of money can make a big difference, for example after the typhoon in the Philippines, £1 was enough to buy rice to keep a family alive for a week. Our fundraising for C.A.F.O.D. continues.  Three Y4 boys have raised an additional £22 by holding a raffle. Scroll down to see the Market Day photos.

Lent 2017

On the last day of term, the children followed Jesus's journey in a Stations of the Cross service. Here are the pictures.

As Palm Sunday is during the holidays, we celebrated it early with a video of Jesus entering Jerusalem, bible readings from St Mark's Gospel and the story of Dan the Donkey.

On Friday 24th March, we held our C.A.F.O.D. Market Day.  The children set up their fundraising stalls around the school. As it was a sunny afternoon some were outside too. Take a look at the photos here.

Year 3 led our Ash Wednesday services marvellously as we have begun Lent.  They performed songs, shared their own Lenten promises and presented the story of Florence who was helped by a C.A.F.O.D. project in Zambia. Florence's story In the morning they performed for the other children and in the afternoon to parents and families. During the celebration, children received their ashes.

Advent and Christmas 

Year 2 led our Advent celebrations with performances creating a wreath of holly, berries and candles.

Throughout December we made badges rather than sending Christmas cards.

Nursery and Reception presented a total of six Nativity performances to their families.

In our end of term liturgical celebrations, Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus were visited by the shepherds.

The Year of Mercy

Pope Francis marked the liturgical year 2015-16 as the Holy Year of Mercy, a time of grace, peace, conversion and joy. 

 

Merciful Like the Father

In school, we celebrated together: in November we commemorated All Saints and All Souls days; Advent; Ash Wednesday, Lent and Easter; Our Lady's month of May; we have our patronal saints’ day - Ss Peter and Paul on June 29th; in July, Year 6 have a day of reflection. During Advent and Lent we have Mass before school every Friday. 

Our Year 4 children make their first Reconciliation, are confirmed and celebrate their First Holy Communions.
