Confirmandi 2019

Congratulations to all of our Year 6 children who were Confirmed by Bishop McGough on Friday 29th of November.  The children have all worked really hard in preparation for receiving this important Sacrament and are now full members of the Catholic Church.

The children all chose a saint who inspired them and researched about their life, this became their Confirmation name.

We’re sure that you’ll agree that all of the children looked really smart of their special day.

Y2 Advent Assembly

Friday, 29 November 2019

Year 2 led the Advent Assembly.

On Friday 29th November Y2 led the whole school Advent Assembly.  The children told us about the Advent wreath and the weekly focus of each of the candles.  All the children and staff made Advent promises, Key Stage 1 hung theirs on a Christmas tree, whilst the rest of the school placed their promises in the empty manger.

Year 6 Service of Light

Thursday, 21 November 2019

The children were supported by their parents, Godparents and Sponsors at the service

On Thursday 21st of November, the Confirmandi took part in our Service of Light.  The children who will be Confirmed by Bishop McGough at St. Chad’s on Friday 29th November were supported by their parents, Godparents and Sponsors during the service.  Each child’s Baptismal candle was lit from the Paschal Candle and then handed over to the child by their parent or Godparent, this was to symbolise the responsibility for the child’s faith being handed on to the child.

We will continue to remember the Confirmandi in our prayers in the lead up to Confirmation.

Key Stage 1 Have New Play Equipment

Play Trail Taking Shape

The Play Trail Takes Shape

The school’s old play equipment had reached the end of safe use: the wood had rotted in places and split in others. So when we were looking for a replacement we were pleased to find a company that manufactured their equipment from plastic which would last a long time and not succumb to rotting or splitting. However, we were concerned that plastic wasn’t environmentally friendly. When we found the Hideout House were using recycled plastic this “ticked all the boxes”.

The children (and parents) were really excited to think that the new trim tail had once been milk cartons!  Now that the equipment is installed it looks sturdy, but quite rustic, in our play area. The children love it and we expect to get many years of use from it.
