Well done this week to lots of pupils who have flown the flag for St Peter’s in the most wonderful of ways. On Saturday 18 November, 43 pupils from the school choir performed at Oaklands to raise the curtain on their Christmas Craft Fayre. They made a wonderful impression with a superb range of festive carols and songs, and I must particularly thank the choir leader Miss Hill as well as the families who brought their children along to take part.
During the week, Years 5 and 6 celebrated Mass at Sacred Heart and St Peter the Apostle. The pupils in Year 6 rocked the church with the liveliest rendition of Salve Regina that you will ever hear outside of a stage performance of Sister Act, and Year 5 impressed Monsignor Jeremy with their knowledge of the Angelus. It is not often one says this, sadly, but this really was a ‘fun’ Mass in which to participate. My thanks go to the volunteers who helped the children walk to church, and especially the Year 5 and 6 staff who prepared the children so well for the celebration.
Finally, a public thanks to all of the teaching staff here at St Peter’s for their work over two nights this week for Parents’ Evenings. It was great to see such high parent attendance, representing the shared commitment we all have to the children’s learning and progress.
