Year 11 Retreat Day

On Thursday 6th October Year 11 had their retreat day. The students were taken off timetable for the day and instead of their normal lessons they spent each period reflecting on the lives of each of the school’s house saints, namely; St Oscar Romero, St Mother Teresa, St Maximillian Kolbe and St Therese of Lisieux. The students created beautiful reflective pieces of artwork which are on display in the school’s reception. The day ended with a joyful celebration of Mass with Fr Marc.

Year 7 Welcome Mass

On Thursday 22nd September, we welcomed Fr John Kyne to celebrate mass with our new Year 7 students. Fr John talked our new students through the different parts of mass while celebrating and he was assisted by a group of students who volunteered to be altar server’s, readers and to take the offertory up. It was a beautiful mass to welcome the students into the next 5 years here at All Saints’ and the group of volunteers were shining examples to their peers.

CAFOD – World Gifts

Following the outstanding efforts of our students during Lent, we were able to raise over £1000 for CAFOD and each form was able to purchase a range of World Gifts. The gifts which will be distributed to families and communities who are supported by CAFOD included; thirteen goats, three vegetable gardens, five sets of chickens and one home for life.

Each form has received cards from CAFOD thanking them for their efforts and Ann Neale from CAFOD came into school last week to present Mr Sheehan with a certificate from CAFOD recognising the fundraising efforts of the school.
