Our Catholic Life
'With Jesus as our guide , we learn, pray and live together in a safe and happy way.'
Welcome to our "Catholic Life of the School" page.
Through this page we aim to share with you and celebrate many of the elements which make our Catholic school so special.
On this page you will find information to help families, the Parish and school work together in supporting the development of our children's faith and Religious Education.
You will also find photographs showing special celebrations and some of our opportunities for Collective Worship.
There are also photographs of our school work, displays, charity work and clubs.
Fundraising at our school this year
Our first fundraising event this year has been our annual Macmillan Coffee morning hosted by our Y5/6 children. It was our busiest yet and people were so generous raising a huge £200 for this worthy cause.
In 2019 we raised money for different charities in various ways.
In February we took home Father Hudson boxes.
In June we supported Friends of the Holy Land with a cake sale and own clothes day.
In November 2018 we took part in 'Children in Need'- by dressing in spotty clothing.
Working in the community
We have visited Curborough community centre to entertain the live at home friendship group with our singing.
We have invited parishioners to join us as we presented the stations of the Cross during Holy week.
We have created art work for the parish holiday at home scheme.
