Congratulations to our Year 6 class, who delivered a wonderful assembly based on Blessed Carlo Acutis – our Parish Saint. He really is a true inspiration to us all – and the video they shared about his life was extremely moving.
Congratulations to the children who received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion on Saturday. You were beautifully prepared and all of our school community are proud of you.
Yesterday, Father Mark led Mass in school with children in attendance for the first time in over 18 months. The children behaved reverently throughout as Father Mark spoke to us about Blessed Carlo Acutis. The younger classes that were not in attendance, watched and joined in via a live stream to their classroom.
Our Year 5 and 6 children led a vigil last night for our Blessed Carlo Acutis at SS Peter and Paul Church. Prayers were shared, hymns were sung and work produced by our children was on show to everyone that attended. Well done everyone involved!
Today, all our children promoted going green for CAFOD. The children all came in green clothes and brought donations to contribute to CAFOD. Our Year 6 children made green cakes and cookies, our year 5 children sold green ice cream and nail painting and our wonderful Year 3 children went out litter picking in the local community! The whole school learnt about how they can help protect our planet and raised over £200 – well done!
On our sports day, we were asking for donations to raise money for Compton Care in honour of Tony Mcginn, who worked in our Multi Academy Company but sadly passed away from a long battle with cancer in May.
We would like to say a huge thank you, as we managed to raise an amazing £103.04.
On Tuesday, we celebrated our Rainbow Day in celebration of our Saints, Peter and Paul. Activities included: Rainbow activities, nail painting, tatoos, chalking on the playground, dancing, painting and gardening! With grateful thanks to all of our school community who have generously supported our efforts to live out our mission. We were proudly supporting the Neurosurgery Department, Research & Development at Birmingham Children’s Hospital and we are even prouder to say that we have raised £566.90 to donate! Thank you so much!
Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon of celebration today to mark the Sacrament of Confirmation. The fourteen confirmandi shone like stars and made us very proud.
Last night, our Year 6 confirmandi did us pround! They received their Holy Sacrament of Confirmation. Thank you to Father Mark, Mrs O’Leary and MIss Higgins for their preparation and coordination of a special evening.
