Whole School Catholic Life

Advent

We have entered into this special time of preparation in school. We have lit our first purple candle as we count down to Christmas and the birth of Jesus. 

In school, all of our altar clothes are purple to show that we are preparing and we are following our Walk with me calendar each day to see what message it gives us.

 

We began the week with the children being able to wear something purple to mark the start of Advent.  The children had an afternoon of Advent craft to make things representing their countdown to Christmas. 

 

This year, instead of asking for donations for our reverse Advent calendar we have joined with other schools in our cluster for the Toy Appeal. We would like to thank all those for their donations to this cause and for thinking of those less fortunate than ourselves.

It has been a pleasure to see the children's enthusiasm and compassion to others outside of their family.

Children enjoyed the chance to chat and make a piece of art to take home with them.  The children also wrote the name of the person they thought about most during the session onto a small heart that we will use to display in school.

St. Edward's Feast day

Today, we celebrated the feast day of the patron saint of our school. In each class we learned about him and why he was made a saint. There was a mixture of activities such as 'Happy Feast Day' cards, crowns and lots of other creative activities to celebrate this special day for our school. We were very lucky this year and would like to say thank you to the parents who helped mark this day by decorating our playgrounds with balloons.

Mary's Birthday

As it was Mary's birthday on the 8th September, each class prepared a Mary altar and held a special prayer service dedicated to her. It focused on the stories about Mary from the Bible and why she is so special to us. After this each child created a piece of art wok for display to show anyone who could see into our classrooms how special Mary is to us.
