Christmas 2023

We are so proud of all our children who have participated in Christmas activities over the past 2 weeks: Carol singing, Nativities, plays and performances, collective worship and acts of kindness towards our neighbours and community. The children returning from London kept the passengers on the delayed train entertained with songs. We are now all speaking French thanks to Year 3 & 4 - Joyeux Noël Our carol singing choir can now be re-booked for 2024 but be quick they are in demand and our Reception children are Strictly Stars of the future!! All our children have been a real credit to both school and their families and we have had several messages from members of the public to tell us so.


Carols by Candlelight

Wow!! What a beautiful way to end our Christmas celebrations! Every child sung their heart out and really helped everyone who was there feel that extra bit Christmassy and help us focus on the true meaning of Christmas. Thank you to all the staff members who have helped prepare and rehearse for the evening. A huge thank you to all of you, who, yet again, turned out to support your children and our school – it is very much appreciated. And finally, the biggest thank you is to the children – our beautiful singers and our amazing readers. On behalf of the staff and the children , I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and God Bless. Mrs Burgess


Year 3 & 4 Nativité Français – Magnifique!!! 

The children from year 3 and year 4 have been working hard practicing their nativity play in French. To the delight of their parents and grandparents, they delivered their performance, and it was a resounding success. They really captured the Christmas story in the production as well as performing a selection of Christmas songs such as Il est ne le divin enfant, Vive le Vent! and En vous souhaite Joyeux noel. A huge well done to each and every one of them. As always, you made us proud.


Year 3 Christmas Choir

The children from year 3 treated the staff and customers at Queens Park Leisure Centre to a Christmas carol performance. They sung a selection of carols including O Come All Ye Faithful, Silent Night and Away in a Manger. Quite an audience grew as visitors passing by stopped to listen. The staff at the leisure facility were delighted with the children and praised them for giving up their time to entertain them.


The Big Little Nativity

Our Infant children provided us with a real Christmas treat with a new version of a very old story. The children performed brilliantly with speeches, singing and actions. We even had some dancing sheep!!!!! Thank you to everyone who came to support the children this week, it means so much for them to be able to show you their hard work. Please see the class pages for photographs.


Year 5 Carol Performance

John Smith Dementia Group – Year 5 brought joy to one of our community groups at Ruskin Drive. They performed carols and participated in activities with the group members.

Bishop Tom's Visit

In June 2022 we were pleased to welcome Bishop Tom Neylon back to our school. This was his first visit since leaving as our parish priest. Since then he moved first to Widnes and, more recently, Liverpool when he became bishop.

Bishop Tom celebrated Mass with the whole school and the parish community. Father Martin joined us and both priests then visited all the classes in school. 

It was a great visit, and the first whole school Mass we have celebrated since Covid restrictions began. Thanks to Bishop Tom, Father Martin and Deacon Paul for making the Mass and whole visit such a special occasion.

Rosary in May

May is traditionally a month devoted to Mary, mother of Jesus. Year 5 have been learning about the Rosary prayers and have used Rosary Beads to help focus prayers in a measured way.

Christmas 2021

We celebrated Christmas this year with a beautiful carol service, in church attended by families and friends. Children read and performed in costumes to help tell the Christmas story in a different way. We all sang a lovely selection of carols, some traditional, some much more modern.

Fr Martin gave us a special blessing and Mrs Brookes was able to present him a cheque for £150.00 to give to the SVP. Our MiniVinnies have raised this money by running a book stall at playtimes. Thanks to everyone for their support. 

Special thanks to Fr Martin and the team of stewards who made it possible for us to come into church, safely even under Covid restrictions.

October Celebrations

We are still not able to all go into church at the same time with parents and parishioners. This has not stopped us celebrating St Teresa's feast day and harvest. We were very lucky that Father Martin was able to join us and take part in readings and singing hymns in our school hall. Thanks to Y6 for reading at both services. 



Easter Service

Our Easter Service this year had to be different because of Covid restictions. It was outside, we sat in bubbles and Father Martin had no microphone!


Year 6 read very well under the difficult circumstances, Mrs Brookes and Father Martin have much louder voices...

The service was a joyful one and was the first time in months that we had been able to meet as a large group. We were able to sing together and the hymn Risen  was a perfect way to round off the celebration. We then held our raffle (tickets given in exchange for donations to the SVP food bank) and some rather nice chocolate eggs were won. Thanks to everyone who made such generous donations.
