Action for Creation

Thank you to our pupil champlains who led our prayer  services for this day of action. We learned about recycling our waste fruit and paper.  At lunchtime we all shared a simple lunch of baked potato. We had a compettion to see which class could leave the least waste. The winners were Year 4 with zero waste, closely followed by Year 2 and Year 5.

The children wrote pledges for what they are going to do to help reduce waste and stop climate change.

St George’s Day

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.

 

Holy Week and Easter

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!
