It’s a big well done too, to our first stars of the week of 2018! All of these children have made a special effort this week with their work, their behaviour or their attitude in some way. Well done!
Over the festive season, our Mini Vinnies have made Christmas cards and visited Butterwick Hospice to deliver them, and sing carols. The patients have loved this, and we have had some lovely messages of thanks. Well done Mini Vinnies
Children from Year 6 collected all of the food donated to our Harvest Food Bank, and took it to Woodhouse Close Community Centre. We filled lots of bags, and heard about where our donations would go – to local people in need. Thank you for helping us with this great cause.
On 11th September Year 6 attended Faith ’15. Organised by our Diocese for schools from all over our region, the day included dancing and singing with the Faith ’15 band, a chance to hear Bishop Seamus speak, and talks by inspirational visitors.
We heard from Richard Moore, who told us his remarkable story of forgiveness after being blinded by a rubber bullet in Northern Ireland when he was a child.
We also heard from Finn, a ten-year old pupil from Sacred Heart Primary School, Byermoor who was born prematurely and has raised over £2,000 for ‘Bliss’, a charity that helps babies and young children who need special care and assistance, by cycling the Coast to Coast route.
Fr Dermott’s closing liturgy included a special commissioning prayer from Bishop Seamus:
“Lord Jesus Christ,
Shine your light upon your children gathered here.
Send them out to be your witnesses, proclaiming your Good News
Strengthen them, teach them and inspire them to live your love and so inspire others.
May they remember they are chosen to be your disciples
And may the Holy Spirit be with them so that they may always be inspired to inspire.
We ask this in your name. Amen.”
On Thursdsay 23rd April, we received a surprise visit from Titan the Robot, who also showed us the new Arriva X1 bus. Titan has appeared all over the world and been on TV Programs such as The Paul O’Grady show, so it was very exciting having him visit our school. He was rather large and noisy, but, thankfully, he was friendly. He sang some songs for us and made us jump by squirting water (instead of lasers!) out of his eyes. Take a look at some of our photos, below.
