Bishop Mark has sent us all a letter.
Year 6 brought great joy to the residents of York House Rest Home today when they stood outside and sang Christmas songs and carols. The tennis players at Beach Gardens seemed to have enjoyed the singing too!
We will be celebrating Las Posadas again as part of our Advent preparations. The ‘Holy Family’ were brought to our class liturgies and blessed, ready to start their journey visiting your homes. This year everyone will be having their own Mary and Joseph at the beginning of Advent. We will send home baby Jesus, shepherds and some livestock at the end of the term, and the kings and their camels after the holidays – ready for Epiphany – so you can create the whole nativity.
Do email us photos of The Holy Family in your homes so that we can share them on the website.
Thank you so much for your generous gifts for the foodbank and the £220.20 donations for CAFOD.
Many thanks to everyone who brought in food for the food bank in Swanage, or money to help CAFOD in their work around the world. We were overwhelmed by your generosity. We held a lovely outdoor Harvest sharing time, followed by worship in our classrooms.
We are preparing for our Harvest celebration this Friday. We will be supporting CAFOD and our local foodbank.
Someone in Year 4 received an important reply this week, after writing to Her Majesty The Queen. Poppy Scott had written expressing her concerns about the use of plastic in packaging. She received a courteous reply and suggested Poppy visit www.royal.uk and particularly the section entitled The Royal Household and the Environment.
Well done and thank you to the two Year 2 children who have been litter-picking on their way to school each morning.
Schools across the Diocese of Plymouth have been sharing their efforts to protect ‘our shared inheritance, whose fruits are meant to benefit everyone’ Laudato Si. So inspiring!
Name that tune, anyone?
