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 October we held our Harvest Mass and asked for donations of food. We were able to provide our local food bank with 25 food parcels. Thank you to all our families who donated what they could.
In November our school council chose to support Children in Need by holding a pjyama day, we raised £142.05. Well done everyone!
Also in November we have been praying for all our loved ones in Heaven. We are keeping all those who have died in our prayers during this month.
We all made Bambinelli, during the season of Advent, in our Christmas Mass Father blessed our Bay Jesus' and we then took them home to share with our families.
Working in the community
We have visited Curborough community centre to entertain the live at home friendship group with our singing.
We invited parishioners to join us for our Carol service in the church, it was wonderful to see many parishoners join us and the positive comments they gave us.
