Well done to eleven of our Confirmation group who organised themselves to stay behind to do some cleaning and litter picking around church today – a fantastic effort!
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.
Thank you to our Year 5 class for a really powerful assembly all about the life and achievements of Equiano Olaudah. Their presentation was stunning, leaving the whole hall appalled by the horrors of slavery but also with a strong sense of optimism about how each one of us can be a force for good in the world.
Here is the final song
How clever is our choir?
Thank you to Mrs Brookes and Mrs Halloran for all their help!
Congratualtion to our 180 Golden Stamp prize winners…
…. and to all the Year 6 children who received their Caritas Christi Citizenship award for showing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in their lives.
Today, it has been a real privilege to meet April Barrett MBE who came to talk to us about her work with the Dwarf Sports Association.
April and Hassan told us what like is like when you have dwarfism – all the things that can be tricky, but more importantly, all the things you can do really well if you try hard and don’t give up. In fact April became an Olympic Champion at Boccia and Hassan is an amazing football player.
Then we met Josh who told us what it is like for him having autism and ADHD. He had to overcome some real problems but it didn’t stop him becoming a champion archer.
Thank you so much to all our visitors for the day, from Birmingham Disability Sports; Aston Villa and some students from Wilson Stewart and Bishop Walsh schools. And a huge thank you to Andy Steed from Birmingham City Council who planned the day for us. We had an amazing time trying out lots of inclusive sports from Boccia and Archery to inclusive football and tennis ……and we even had a go at indoor fishing!
