The autumn term started with a series of wonderful events for the school on Tuesday 17th September. Fr Jeremy blessed our new building, to be known as The Unity Building dedicated to Saint Pope John Paul II. In this he was joined by our 60 new Year R pupils who were also blessed as a welcome to the school. Following that, Fr Jeremy celebrated Mass with Years 1 to 6 in full attendance and fine voice. The message of the homily was that, like the Disciples in the boat during the storm on the Sea of Galilee, we should ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’, placing our faith in Jesus. And to round things off, with members of the School Council representing the pupil body, Fr Jeremy blessed our new Prayer Garden. This project has been 2 years in the making, and was funded through pupil enterprise projects, a grant from our local MP, and through generous donations from our local parishes, for which we are truly grateful. Thanks also go to Mrs Edge and Mrs Turner who led the prayer garden project.
