The Catholic Life of Our School

Congratulations to the children in Year 4 who presented money from our Lent fundraising efforts to Bishop Marcus at the Good Shepherd Service in Leeds Cathedral!

Year 5 have enjoyed a Spiritual Retreat with an overnight stay at Herd Farm! Have a look at the photographs below:

The children decorated prayer spinners and used star stickers to represent people and things they wanted to pray for. 

Year 5 enjoyed a guided meditation based on the story of The Pear:

Year 5 enjoyed night prayers in the woods. Everyone said something they were thankful for during the day:

The following day, Year 5 had their first session of preparation for the                 Sacrament of Confirmation:

Year 5 wrote and led a beautiful Collective Worship on the virtue of resilience and perseverance. 
The reading was from St. Paul's letter to the Ephesians - put on the armour of God - the children journaled using an image of armour and thought about what values and qualities God gives us to help protect us from doing the wrong thing: 

Wishing all of our families a happy and holy Easter!

All children in school have walked the Stations of the Cross as we prepare ourselves for Easter.  Below you can see pictures of Y1 and Y6 completing their Stations Pilgrimage!

Year 5 presented parents and the whole school with a reflective and very impressively performed play all about the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus!  Well done to all children and staff in Year 5!
