Share the Journey
At school we are supporting CAFOD's 'Share the Journey' campaign. Inspired by Pope Francis' special concern for people on the move CAFOD have asked communities to walk in empathy of those displaced people. The aim is to collectively walk 29,000 miles, the distance around earth. On Monday 21st May the whole school, including staff, walked a mile around the school field to contribute to this total, 243 miles. The children walked with their buddies and talked about journeys they have made and family members that have moved from and to other countries. We will be adding our total to the international total.
St Joseph's Day
The whole school had a wonderful day celebrating St Josephs's Day. The children began by completing their sponsored run in organised by the house captains in aid of GOSH. Then the day was spent making crafts from wood, just like St Joseph the carpenter. We ended our celebration with Father Terry celebrating mass dedicated to our Patron Saint.
This half term we have entered the season of Lent. The children have been considering how they can 'Pray, Stop, Go' during this time and discussing this in class and during assembly time.
The school will be holding 'Stations of the cross' this week and reconciliation service before Easter.
