Welcome back to what has been a beautiful start to the summer term. Monday 16 April saw the first whole school worship of Easter for the St Peter’s community, and there was a sense of joy and praise through song as the pupils welcomed the Gospel reading with a rousing acclamation of Alleluia, Alleluia, Give thanks to the Risen Lord.
Even though we are now well into the liturgical season of Easter, the process of counting up our Lenten fundraising is on-going. Our running total is over £480, and families can still add to that by bringing in any CAFOD collection pyramids full of coins. St Peter’s school hopes that through prayer, and charity via the work of CAFOD, our pupils can benefit the education of children around the world that they will never meet.
Learning this week has been as much outside as inside the classroom, and pupils have used the benefit of the warm weather and the school environment to enhance their lessons. As always, but perhaps a bit earlier in the year than usual, please remember to send your child into school with a hat and a water bottle, and apply sun cream as part of the morning routine of getting ready for school.
