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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Key Stage One Nativity

EYFS Nativity

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.  

Harvest Festival

 

The whole school community came together for our Harvest Mass on 11th October, thank you to everyone for their very generous donations.  All food and toiletry items will be donated to our local Foodbank https://www.trusselltrust.org/ and
