What a busy start to our new school year we have had! We welcomed the new children into our Reception class as they were given a St. Michael's Prayer Book to share with their families, so that they can worship together.
School continues to promote the word of God within the family, by buying a ‘Wednesday word’ for each home. Parents are asked to share this with their children. The Sunbeams and Rainbows provision started in November.
To prepare for full membership of the Church, the Sacramental Programme for Year 3 pupils began on September 30th. A joint advent celebration with the Year 3 pupils from St Bernadette’s was held. The children had the opportunity to socialise afterwards by meeting their prayer partners and playing together.
On St. Michael’s feast day, we celebrated Mass in Church. After mass, parents and friends joined us for a Macmillan Coffee morning.
Our EYFS and KS1 children celebrated the baptism of Maisie and Sophie's baby sister in church. A celebration was held in the church hall to mark this special occasion.
The creative displays around school reflect the liturgical year, keeping us informed of the importance of remembering in November, the period of waiting in Advent and the preparation period of Lent.
On 1st November, Mass for All Saints was shared with the Parish community, as was our Christmas mass. All children within in the school also took part in a Christmas performance for the parish community - KS1 performed I'm gonna shine and KS2 held a service in church.
A number of staff joined colleagues from other catholic schools in Bury at St. Mary’s Church to celebrate the annual 'Catholic Education’ Mass on 8th November.
The Mini Vinnies have had another busy year. They sold their ‘Children in Need’ badges and have held raffles to raise money for CARITAS and CAFOD.
