Happy St George’s Day to all of us!
Today, 23rd April, we celebrate the feast day of the patron saint of England. Many other countries also celebrate this day including Greece, Cyprus, Portugal and Croatia. St George was born in Turkey. He was martyred because he refused to deny his Christian faith. Now people turn to him for protection. Find out more here.
Thank you to cook Mrs Finnegan, for our delicious St George’s Day menu today.
Thursday 22nd April, was national Stephen Lawrence Day. The children learned about the beautiful qualities of this young man whose life was cut short so tragically. They wore orange, his favourite colour, and built Friendship Towers in their classrooms to commemorate him.
The children told the story of the events of Holy Week in their class assemblies. We adore you Oh Christ and we praise you, because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
He Is Risen. Alleluia!
