SECTION 48 DIOCESE RE INSPECTION JANUARY 2017

On Tuesday, in our Remembrance Mass in Church, we placed the wreaths we had made in front of the altar, along with the names of the soldiers from our local community who were killed in the First World War. As always we are very proud of the respect for this tradition shown by our children.

Little Way Week Monday 30th September – 6th October 2019.

 

It is the time of year for us to celebrate all the little things our children do to show that they are trying to be like Jesus.

We are sure that we will see lots of little acts of kindness in school and we hope that you will at home too.

This is our Little Way Week Prayer:

Dear Jesus,

Share, Help, Care, Pray.

Help me to do these every day.

Help me to show love in all I do.

So I may grow more like you, Amen.

 

Perhaps you would say it with your child each day this week and talk about what acts of kindness they have shown and maybe give them some ideas for the next day.

Pupil Chaplains.
Congratulations to the following children who were interviewed and appointed to be our new Pupil Chaplains: Jasmine, Olivia, Rae, Rylan, Szymon, Torran and Victor.
Their role is to promote our Mission Statement and the Catholic life of our school. They have a busy year ahead of them and they all bring their own unique qualities to the role. Please keep them in your prayers.
On Wednesday our newly appointed Pupil Chaplains went to St Edwards Church Hall in Darwen to meet up with the Chaplaincy teams from other local Catholic schools. They all worked so well together and, as always, our children were great ambassadors for Our Lady’s.

Cafod Harvest Fast Day - Friday 4th October 2019

On Friday 4th October we all tried to brighten up the harvest by holding a non-uniform day and bringing donations to school for Cafod. 

Cafod can continue to work with the poorest communities because of our donations and together we can help to build a brighter world, free from extreme poverty. We raised £132.00 for CAFOD. Many thanks for your generosity.

Thank you so much to everyone who donated food to our Harvest appeal. Once again, your generosity has over whelmed us. These gifts will be sent to the Blackburn Food Bank to help people in our local community. Thank you also to the families who came to share our Harvest Mass. We really appreciate the time you gave to celebrate with us.

Remembrance 2018 2

The children who came to prayer group each made a cross to represent one of the soldiers who was killed in the WW1 from our local area. We placed these crosses on the hill near the entrance to our school during a short prayer service.

The pupil chaplains also made a ceramic poppy to represent each of these soldiers. These poppies were then presented during our Remembrance Mass in church as the names of the men were read out.

Some of these poppies have been given to the families of these men. Each child in school made a poppy which was then attached to a class wreath, which was also presented in our Remembrance Mass.

Our pupil chaplains made lots of Advent angels and hid them around school for the children to find. We hope your child has brought one home and shared the Advent message with you.

Thank you

Father Ged asked for our help. He wants to make some hampers for people in our parish who may be lonely at Christmas. Once again, your generosity in providing food donations for these hampers has been amazing. Many thanks. 

Monday 7th January

Today we gathered in the hall to celebrate the special feast day of the Epiphany (which actually took place on Sunday 6th January). We remembered the visit of the Wise men as they came to worship Jesus. 

We reflected on what we want to be in 2019 to ensure that we are living life to the full. We prayed that God will shine His light on our fears, show us how we can work together and lift our hearts with joy.
