Anti-bullying week visit from ‘Big Dave’

Friday, 16 November 2018

We have taken part in National Anti-bullying week this week which has seen lots of activities take place in classes across school.

Today, we welcomed former World’s Strongest Man ‘Big Dave’ who led an inspirational assembly promoting the importance of communication and self worth. Dave then met with our playground buddies and visited classes for a question and answer session. It was great to see you again ‘Big Dave’!

Thank you to Mr Padotan for arranging this school visit that our children found so engaging.

Remember to ask your children about all of the activities that they have taken part in during Anti-bullying week.

Values and Virtues Tree

After we joined together as a whole school to worship this morning, our children from each class offered their leaves to our Virtues and Values tree for this half term. The children have written how they will aim to be Faith-Filled and Hopeful in all they do to live out the Jesuit values.

Remember to ask your child about our new Values and Virtues for this half term!

On Friday 19th October, Mrs Hinton led a thoughtful assembly that focused on Black History Month.

The children learnt about many inspirational black people throughout history and the children also offered their thoughts following the work that they have completed throughout October.

The mission team also did a great job of preparing the prayer focus!

Parents were invited and one commented, “It was a great assembly, I really enjoyed it.”
