This week was simply wonderful for Year 6. On Tuesday the pupils put on a great performance of Joseph for their end of year show. Going from auditions to practices to full dress rehearsal in just 4 weeks at the end of a packed school year is no mean feat, and the pupils did a great job performing a matinee to the rest of the school before the evening showcase performance to family and friends in the evening. Thank you to Oaklands for hosting us, and for the technical support given by Mr Olford, Oaklands’ Senior IT Technician.
The week ended with a delightful celebration of Mass for Year 6 and their families. This is always a small and touching occasion, having just one year group gathered for a very special celebration. Fr Jeremy and Miss Keogh were as amazing as ever in leading the pupils in worship, and the photo montage at the end took pupils and families on a trip down memory lane that generated laughter and tears alike.
Thank you to all the staff from across the whole school who have worked so hard to prepare Year 6 for the end of term. Equally, enormous thanks to the irrepressible volunteers of the Friends of St Peter’s who laid on a cream tea for the Year 6 parents and pupils at the end of Mass, which was enjoyed in the hall to the sound of torrential July rain.
