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.

Lenten Charities 2019
During Lent one of the charities we will be supporting is HCPT. HCPT is a charity who take children (including past and present pupils from our school) on life changing pilgrimage holidays. This is also a charity close to Miss Hopper's heart as she volunteers as a group leader. You can find more information - https://www.hcpt.org.uk/
On Friday 8th March Andy Clare came to talk to KS2 about the work of HCPT
The children all enjoyed acting out the Nativity story. They sang their hearts out and were all superstars!
On Sunday 9th December we had our first family Mass of the year, this was also the Mass of Commitment for years 3 and 6. Well done to the pupils for leading the Mass in such a respectful and reverent manner.
