Dear Parents and Children
It has been a week where we have been blessed with visitors. Mr. Cass, one of ourGovernors, joined a school council meeting. He asked the children some questions andhad to answer several himself regarding his role as governor and how the governingbody support the life of the school. Thank you to Mr. Cass for his time and interestand the School Council for the welcome they gave Mr. Cass and the thoughtfulquestions. We look forward to welcoming more governors to the school throughoutthis term. On Wednesday the school hall became a magical place! The children wereenthralled by a play that took them back in time and into a wonderful garden. Thechildren really enjoyed the experience and participated beautifully. Thank you to allour parents whose financial contribution enabled us to share this wonderfulexperience with our children. Father Gerard, celebrated morning worship with thechildren on Thursday. The children were attentive and reflective. Father Gerard toldthe children the visitors to the Mass last week had also commented on what a specialcelebration it was.Mrs. M Sanderson
