G.I.F.T. Team

Welcome to our GIFT team's page, dedicated to all of the fantastic work they are doing in school. So far this year, this has included organising charity events, welcoming our new Priest, organising and planning Whole School Worship and Class Worship, planning 'Lenterprise', attending lots of GIFT team and Church events and lots, lots more...

June 2019 - Our Parish Picnic was a great success and it was lovely to invite the local community and parishioners into school to celebrate the 60th anniversary of our Church. This followed a very successful Quiz Night the previous month.

May 2019 - This May, the Chaplains have organised a Rosary walk around school. Children have volunteered to take part in the walk which involves saying Decades of the Rosary at spiritual locations of their choice around school.

2nd May 2019 - This morning we welcomed Bishop John Arnold to our school to open up our outdoor eco-classroom. It was a wonderful morning and the weather only just held out. Well done to the children and the whole community for getting us to this stage with the outdoor classroom - all part of our plans to push outdoor learning even further in the future...

April 2019 - The G.I.F.T. team have been busy getting the Reading/Worship hut ready for the visit of Bishop John on Thursday, after which we will be able to use it on a daily basis!

April 2019 - Our children have been busy preparing the outdoor eco-classroom ready for the visit of Bishop John on Thursday 2nd May. Part of this clean-up has been to develop the 'G.I.F.T. team/Reading hut' which has been created as a Worship area and as a meeting place for the team on Friday afternoon.

April 2019 - 'Lenterprise' - Class 4 - Class 4 chose to sell creme eggs around school!

March 2019 - 'Lenterprise' - Each class has chosen a way they think will raise lots of money for those people who are less fortunate in society. So far the ideas have been great! We have had a pyjama non-uniform day, a toast sale and fruit kebabs sale!

Our Chaplains organised a 'Big Family Lunch' at the beginning of March where all of the teachers had the opportunity to eat and socialise with the children from each class.

March 2019 - Well done to our Pupil Chaplains for planning and leading Whole School Worship this week.

During February, we remembered our former Headteacher and friend Ms.Nolan who sadly passed away 2 years ago this month. The children and staff still remember her on a daily basis and we decorated her memorial area with lots of pictures and memories. We will never forget her.

March 2019 - Our Ash Wednesday Mass was well attended and involved our children reading out their Lenten promises.

March 2019 - Class 4 have been looking after our Eco-Classroom and preparing it for the visit of Bishop John on 2nd May 2019. We can then use it to support our learning throughout the curriculum.

March 2019 - Well done to members of the GIFT team who attended the 'Stations of the Cross' service at St. Wulstan's Church last week.

January 2019 - It was lovely to welcome Father Farrell to our school. He was welcomed by our Pupil Chaplains, who put on a fantastic presentation for him, before having lunch and then meeting the classes in the afternoon.

March 2019 - 'Open the Book' joined us this month for another memorable performance as they portrayed the story of Ruth through drama.
