Community Christmas Concert

It was lovely to welcome visitors from the POD to join in our concert of songs, dance and a Christmas Carol sing-a-long.

Christmas Lunch

Thank you to all our wonderful cooks for a delicious lunch today.

Early Years Nativity Story

Reception and Nursery children told the Christmas story beautifully,  from the viewpoint of the animals in the stable. The mice and  cows; sheep and donkeys all welcomed the newborn baby into the world in their own magical way.

Caritas Schools Carol Service

On Friday we held our annual carol service at St Chad’s Cathedral.  Well done to the choirs from all the schools who came along to sing.

ReachOut Celebration

Thank you to everyone who has supported the ReachOut Project over the last two years. It was great to look back and remember the highlights at the coffee morning. Thank you to Mrs Halloran for all her hard word and dedication in harnessing the community spirit in Nechells!

Feliz Navidad

Our Christmas cards are made and ready to post to our friends in Seville in Spain.

Ms Fernandez helped write our messages in Spanish.

And look what arrived today……

Caritas in Action

Year 3 and 4 read Charlotte’s Web in class. After reading all about life on a farm, they went to visit Ashend farm and then decided to raise money for a community which did not have enough to eat. They supported CAFOD World Gifts to buy some fish and some chickens. Here they are opening the cards from CAFOD.

Awake, Awake for the Lord is Coming

We have entered the season of Advent.
This week we are lighting second candle on our Advent Wreath.

The children are making cribs at home to be blessed by Father Solomon at our final Carol Service.

We had a wonderful Advent workshop with parents working with their children to make nativity pictures and wreaths and paper chains to decorate their homes.
