    On Wednesday 19th June, Year 5 and Year 1 spent a day at Church and the Parish Centre for a Day of Reflection. The day started with a few craft activities, including decorating their own prayer cross. This was followed by Mass in Church, where the children joined parishioners. Many parishioners and Fr John commented on the children's fantastic behaviour and reverence during Mass. Fr John was especially impressed with the spontaneous prayers that Year 5 shared. After Mass, Fr John and Deacon Hugh held a questions and answer session for the children – the children asked some quite challenging questions!

    On the week beginning 3rd June we had an Enterprise Week in school. During assembly on Monday, Mr Curran gave each class £40 which had been donated by the PTA. The children were told that with that money, they had to make things, which they would be able to sell in school on Friday. The children went back to class and worked hard with their teachers to talk about what product to make, how to make it within a budget and how to sell the product to hopefully make a profit. During this week the children learnt about managing finances, budgeting, advertisement and marketing. At the end ...
