  • Westminster Cathedral Carol Service

    12th December

    Westminster Cathedral Carol Service

     

    On Tuesday the 12th of December 2017, the Mini Vinnies, Chaplains and Caritas Ambassadors visited the Westminster Cathedral to celebrate the birth of Jesus through a carol service. We all set off on the coach excited to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas together.

    When we arrived in Westminster, we settled in before the service began. All of a sudden the angel Gabriel came out and greeted us. He told us the story of the nativity and, at an important stage in the story, we would sing a carol.

    There were farm animals called Larry the donkey and a sheep. While we were having fun we all had to remember why we celebrate such a major celebration like Christmas. Cardinal Vincent Nichols was there and, in his concluding speech, he stressed the importance of what we can’t always see. We all bought gifts in aid of the Catholic Children’s Society and knew we came back to school knowing that we had done a good deed.

    We had an amazing time and enjoyed celebrating the birth of Jesus - Christmas.  We also met Cardinal Vincent afterwards and were privileged to have our photo taken with him.

  • Chaplains' Enrolement

    09th November

    On Thursday 9th November, we had a Whole School Mass and, during it, Father Paul gave all the student chaplains a special blessing to initiate the children into chaplaincy.

    At the start of the Mass we were given a sheet of paper which had our responses and the special prayer on it.

    After the Homily, Father Paul called us up and gave us the special blessing and a Student Chaplain sash to wear when we are present in our meetings. During the special blessing, we had to read our responses and our prayer out loud.

    This special blessing gives us the courage to spread the Word of God and share our inner thoughts and feelings with other students. We will now be leading assemblies at school to share what has happened during the previous Sunday’s Mass and helping to teach the students how to strengthen their faith.

    Father Frank Visit

     

     

    On 18th October, Father Frank visited Year 5 to teach us about the Eucharist being ‘The Source and Summit of Christian Life’. It was a very interesting and exciting talk. He taught us how the Eucharist has progressed throughout history. He informed us that the source and summit of the Christian church is the Eucharist (the Body and Blood of Christ). As well as that, he told us about modern mass, the reformation, Vatican II and the Christian faith during the middle ages.

    He also told us about how Sunday masses used to be in Latin so nobody got a chance to participate, but now it is in English, so all of us can participate and there were also private and weekly masses!

    Sky Sports Living - A wonderful win for Year 4

    Sky Sports Living - A wonderful win for Year 4!

    On Thursday, 20th April Year 4 set off on a wonderful trip to our local Harrow Leisure Centre. It was a short, exciting walk for both classes.  We were all very excited when we saw the variety of activities waiting for us in the big, blue hall. Surprised, we sat down on the floor staring at the magnificent champions.  They told us that to win we had to use the 6 Keys to Success – communication, confidence, creativity, planning, resilience and team work.  There were 10 other schools enjoying themselves in lots of different sports activities.  At the end, Year 4 were full of joy for they had won and received a beautiful silver cup.

    Science Museum Visit

     

     

    On Tuesday the 7th of March we welcomed some visitors from the Science Museum. We were very lucky to receive funding from the Institute of Physics which made the whole day possible. Reception and Key Stage 1 had workshops around bubbles and materials. The children watched a play about the Three Little Pigs and the materials that they used to make their homes. Then the children learnt how to become bubble masters. They learnt how to waft bubbles and some lucky children even got to go inside a human bubble! Children in Key Stage 2 experienced the Feel the Force workshop where they learnt about forces and how they are used.
