2022 - 2023
Pupils gathered for assembly and observed 2 minutes of silence at 11am, to commemorate the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany during WWI. We honoured the members of the armed forces who have died in the line of duty and we gave thanks for all those people who work in service of others.
All Saints day
Our Y5 classes led mass for our Junior pupils to mark All Saints day. In his homily, Deacon Alex shared a wonderful message, reminding us that we too are all called to be saints and to share our talents for the glory of God. During our Collective Worship assembly, we reflected on the words of Pope Francis who said that he '" hope[s] that among you... are future saints of the 21st Century"
With the help of our RE ambassadors, we collected donations to support local charity Emmaus House, Acton Homeless Concern. Donations of canned foods and non-perishables were gratefully received by volunteers Ian and Terry.
October - the month of the Rosary
During October, pupils explored the Catholic tradition of the Rosary. Our Y2 pupils created their own rosary beads.
Commemorating Queen Elizabeth II
Our pupils paid tribute to the Queen for the dedicated service, leadership and humility that she demonstrated throughout her reign.
'Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May she rest in peace. Amen'
The new school year - Commissioning Mass
Year 6 classes led the Commissioning Mass for Junior pupils, during which our new year 6 leaders received a special blessing from Fr Ambrose. Many parents joined us for our special school mass and the school choir led the singing.
Staff retreat - Wintershall
On Friday 2nd September, our staff visited the Wintershall Estate for a staff retreat. We were greeted by the same individuals who led the Stations of the Cross for our Junior pupils and staff at school during Holy Week. Staff reflected on their role as educators in Catholic schools and considered how to nurture the spiritual development of our pupils in the coming academic year.
