Many thanks for all the generous contributions that were sent in for our Go Green for Harvest campaign.  We have a wonderful selection of food and toiletries to take to the Swanage Foodbank – the School Chaplains delivered it to the Foodbank. We also raised £168.83 for the CAFOD Harvest Appeal.  Thank you, as always, for your kindness and generosity.

Euros Competition Draw

We held an outdoor whole-school assembly to choose groups and teams for the inter-house football competition that will run alongside the other football competition taking place now… details of results will follow.

Mary Procession

May is Mary’s month and we were delighted to hold our Mary Procession this afternoon after missing it last year. The weather rather let us down, but it was nevertheless a super celebration of our namesake and a chance for the whole school to get together. We processed in classes around the school field before presenting our gifts to Mary. Key stage 2 classes then held a celebration liturgy.

Thank you to Father Tim for officiating and to all parents and carers who supplied plants to beautify the school.
