Christingle

(December 18th) Year Six led the school in a Christingle Worship. The Christingle was an opportunity for the school community to come together to worship God and Jesus’ coming as the Light of the World. The service was attended by many parents and carers. Thank you to everyone for making this such as special occasion. 

Some comments from our parents:
'The way you bring the message of Christmas across is brilliant. I really enjoyed the Christingle Service.'
'My first time attending your Christingle Collective Worship and really enjoyed it. Year Six were very good and should be proud.'
'So beautiful, lovely readings. A special start to Christmas.'
'Very moving service about the meaning of Christmas.'
'The service was absolutely fantastic. It was my first time joining and I really enjoyed every bit of it.'
Year 4 lead our Resurrection Mass
Year 2 lead an assembly about St. Joseph

To celebrate the feast day of St. Joseph, Year 2 lead the school in an assembly. They gave clues as to what was special about the day before revealing the statue of St. Joseph. All the children, adults and parents were then given a pebble to place at the feet of St. Joseph to show that we belong to a school named after him.

First Holy Communion

Congratulations to the sixteen children who made their First Holy Communion at St Peter's church on the 9th May.  After many months of First Holy Communion classes the children were well prepared for this important occasion and their conduct was an example for us all.  Many thanks to Mrs Scott and Mrs Hewson for giving up their own time in order to prepare the children for both the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Thanks to Fr. Eamon and Deacon Gerry for all their hard work ensuring that the day was such a special occasion for all concerned.
