Thank you to everyone who supported our Book Fair so generously. As a result, the school will be able to purchase a huge stock of new books for the children. Thanks also to the Library Committee for organising and running the event and for all their hard work running the library each week. This is a most valuable resource in our school.

Some younger children might like to bring up an angel at the start of mass; there are also prayers to be said by children, and children needed to bring up the offertory gifts. Thanks for leaving your child’s name, age and a phone number with one of the Children’s Liturgy Group
There is a huge amount of lost property (jackets, jumpers, hats etc) since September. Please ask at the office if your child has lost any of the above items.
