Our school family have been very generous over the last few months in donating shoes for the children in Gambia. Our School GIFT Team paired up and organised these shoes, which were collected on Monday 15th October 2018 by the Charity FEW (Furniture for Education) ready to deliver to the children.

On Friday 28th September 2018, our lovely GIFT Team had fun decorating cakes to sell at our whole school Macmillan Coffee and Cake morning.

Here is our wonderful GIFT Team display.

On Friday 21st September 2018, our GIFT Team and School Councillors did a great job preparing and involving themselves in our first whole school mass for New Beginnings. Thank you to our families and parishioners who joined them back at school for tea and biscuits.

A huge congratulations to our new GIFT Team members. We are very grateful for your applications and can't wait to work with you.

A huge thank you to our Year 5 and 6 Chaplains for all of their hard work and efforts this year. We wish our Year 6 Chaplains the best of luck for the future.They had great fun in the Secret Garden to celebrate!

On Tuesday 26th June 2018, our school Chaplains visited St Mary's Priory in Bamber Bridge to celebrate how we are a 'Beacon of Hope' to eachother and to those in our local area. In the morning, we met in St Mary's Church with many other North West schools to learn how we could develop our Parish communities using the '7 Steps from School to Parish', followed by taking part in a Liturgy in the afternoon where the Chaplains learnt how they could promote hope in the future. At the end of the Liturgy, the Chaplains were honoured to receive a San Damiano Cross that will be proudly displayed in our School Chapel.

Our School Chaplains ventured to Spring Cottage Home Care to deliver some of the beautiful flowers that had been donated by our very generous pupils at St John's for our Crowning of Mary mass. We hope they brought joy to the residents.

Our School Chaplains created a beautiful spiritual bouquet to help celebrate our special Crowning of Mary mass. The bouquet was left with Mary in our St John the Baptist Parish.

Our Chaplains have been busy raising money for Mission Possible by making and selling their very own edible slime! They had great fun melting marshmellows and kneading and stretching the mixture to create the delicious, yet unusual gloop! The Chaplains managed to raise £109.40! We thank all of our school children and their families for their kindness and support.

Our Year 6 School Chaplains and School Counciillors from Year 1 and Year 2 visited Woodside Home in Padiham.  Mrs Carlile spoke to the staff on the phone and organised a visit for some of our children to go and meet some of the residents there.  Miss McBreen and Mrs Taylor went to Woodside with the children. 

 

They all had a fantastic time and everyone enjoyed doing some colouring and our Year 6 children entertained the residents with their dancing.  They have been learning about WW2 and have been learning the Lindy Hop.  The residents loved this! 

 

We also gave some of the staff and residents some of our Jet Set Angels for them to keep.  All our children were polite and were a credit to the school.  We can't wait to go and visit again soon.

Our Chaplains spent a day at Fisher More RC Humanities College, Colne with all the other Chaplains from Burnley and Pendle. They had a fun-filled day and had the chance to enjoy lots of different activities.

Our school chaplains give up their play times to sell poppies.
