Year 6 parents were invited to see their children re-enact the events of Holy Week in their dramatization of the Passion of Christ. The children provided a solemn and thought-provoking narrative through poetry and mime.
Stations of the Cross
In the lead up to Holy Week, each class visited our Prayer Garden and prayed the Stations of the Cross, led by our GIFT Team. The children designed and created the icons in 2022 and a team of parent volunteers kindly installed them outside.
During Lent, each class invited their parents to come into school to find out what they have been learning about. The children wrote Lenten promises, completed Lenten artwork and shared hot cross buns with their parents. Everyone then joined together for a Lenten liturgy, which the children led.
Racial Justice Sunday (5th February 2023)
All are included in the mission of Christ and His Church.
Let us walk together, pray together and work together.
Prayer of Pope Francis
Come, Holy Spirit, show us your beauty,
reflected in all the peoples of the earth,
so that we may discover anew
that all are important and all are necessary,
different faces of the one humanity
that God so loves.
GIFT Team Assembly
In January, our GIFT Team led a whole school assembly about the Beatitudes. They also set the whole school a challenge of being peacekeepers on the playground.
Year 1 and Year 2 performed the Nativity to their parents in our Parish church, Our Lady and St Thomas of Canterbury. They reminded us very movingly of the true meaning of Christmas.
Month of the Holy Rosary
During October, the GIFT Team led the Rosary every Friday with each class. The intention of our prayers was for peace in Ukraine.
