The Visit of Bishop Patrick

A joyful and very uplifting Mass was celebrated on Friday 31st March when we were fortunate to have Bishop Patrick visiting us. The children led in a very respectful celebration and their beautiful singing almost raised the roof. It was lovely to be joined by governors, MAT directors, parents, parishioners and friends. We were especially delighted to welcome back all the previous head teachers of the school, Mrs Pollard, Mr Marsden, Mrs Sherer, Mrs Brolly, Mr Hirst and Mr Knight. Back at school, we had a lovely catch up over tea and cake and the chaplaincy team did a truly remarkable job as tour guides, showcasing the school to its best. Before he left, Bishop Patrick blessed the new library, prayer garden and the mosaics and metal artwork produced by the children, which are proudly displayed on the front of the school building.  It was an amazing day and we feel blessed and very proud of all the children and staff, and indeed, of the school itself.
