A Year of Prayer

Pope Francis has asked that 2024 be a Year of Prayer.   Children from Years 5 and 6 have had an opportunity to write a prayer and intercessions from personal needs to helping victims of war.  There have been prayers of praise, thanks, sorrow and petitions of care for family members and whole nations.  After the Easter holiday children from every year group will have a chance to write a prayer and these will be offered as part of our Offertory gifts during Mass on Tuesday's.

Live Simply Lenten Pledges 

During our Ash Wednesday Mass, every class brought up to the sanctuary, as part of the offertory gifts, our ‘Lenten Pledges’ as part of the CAFOD campaign to ‘Live Simply.’  Every child in the school has been given an opportunity to make a pledge and share them in their class.  Displayed in the KS1 hall are some of the pledges embracing the church teachings to:

Live Simply; Live Sustainably and Live in Solidarity.

Aoife in class 11

On Tuesday 12th of March, Aoife helped Mrs French lead an Assembly to all of the children and staff in KS2 promoting the work of 'Wellie Wombles' and caring for the environment.  Following the Easter holiday, Aoife and a number of children from Year 5 will be helping the 'Wellie Wombles,' whom Aoife and a number of children from school are members, collect litter from the local park, making a tremendous contribution to our community as well as promoting CAFOD's 'Live Simply' Campaign.
