I’m sure mums and dads were pleased that the children finally returned to school on Monday. We were glad to see there were so many happy children’s faces, too. We celebrated the start of the year and our Spring Term with whole school mass on Thursday. Sometimes, it can take a long time for all 230+ children to arrive and be seated but the first class ready, this week, were the Nursery. As you can see from the photo, many of the children sat with their hands together, eyes closed and said their prayers, while they were waiting. Once mass began, Year 3 children read beautifully, our altar servers (including two new recruits) did a great job and all children sang with enthusiasm.
Over the coming months, with support and advice from Fr Ryan, we plan to make further changes which will increase pupil engagement in the celebration of mass and deepen their spiritual understanding.
Welcome back everybody. It’s going to be a short, but very busy Spring Term.
