On the feast of St. Peter and St. Paul, we held our whole school celebration for the Y4 children who have received the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion this year.  The whole school family, from Reception to Y6, attended morning Mass together as part of this celebration.  The children who have been involved in this year's Sacramental preparation programme received special certificates from school at the end of this Mass and received a well deserved round of applause.

Celebrations continued in school throughout the day, including an ice cream treat for everyone.  What a fabulous day!

Congratulations go to 29 of our Y4 children, who made their First Reconciliation on Thursday 12th December 2013 at St. Patrick's Church.   They were very well supported by parents, staff and other children from within school (who formed a choir for the occasion).  Everyone present was extremely proud of the children.

WELCOME BACK!

A VERY SPECIAL LETTER:

The children in Y4/5 were thrilled today (12.6.13) to receive a thank you for the book of prayers they sent to Pope Francis.

CONFIRMATION/FIRST HOLY COMMUNION:

On Saturday 18th May 2013, 21 of our Y4 children were confirmed and received their First Holy Communion during a special Mass in Church.  The Mass was a wonderful celebration with the children, their families, the school and the parish. 

PRAYERS FOR OUR NEW POPE:

The children in Y4/5 were interested to find out more about our new Pope.  After discovering that the Pope ended his first prayer to the people asking them to pray for him, the children worked hard to write their own prayers for the Pope.  After completing their prayers, a booklet was compiled and sent to the Vatican.

You can read a selection of our prayers here:
