Harvest Mass - The children took part in a whole school Harvest Collective Worship. We thought about what Harvest means to us and to to our community. The incredible generosity of the families at Maryvale meant that we could donate lots of food. Which will make such a difference to the community at this particularly challenging time. 

The Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary  - We had a whole day dedicated to Our Lady.

We have expressed our Love for Our Mother Mary by creating art work, making poems and offered our love and respect through prayer services.
