Fr Peter Visits Year 2

Father Peter and Peter Ross visited Year 2 as part of his class visits to the school. They came to talk to the children in Year 2 about their current topic, looking at the Creation Story. The children listened carefully to the talk and asked some great questions.

Year 1 Visit the Cathedral

Our Year 1 children have visited the Cathedral to meet with Fr Peter to help in their understanding of belonging and how the Sacrament of Baptism is important to Christians, and how this starts a person’s journey to belong to the Church family. Fr Peter role-played the baptism service with the children, who listened carefully and were Amazing!

Harvest Festival Assembly

Every year, we celebrate the true gift of the Harvest. This year, Year 5 children led our assembly reminding us to be truly thankful to God and to all the people who work so hard to provide us with all the food we have.  We cannot thank enough our wonderful school community for all of their generous donations of food.  After the assembly, we packed up all of the food and gave this to the Sisters of The Missionaries shelter on Seel Street to aid all of their charity work for the homeless.

Remembrance Day

Each year we remember those that have died during conflict and war. We are lucky to have our school Chaplin, Father Derek, join us to mark this special occasion with a walk to the local war memorial. We walk to the Noel Chavasse memorial and lay a wreath on behalf of all the children and staff of the school. Lest We Forget, we will Remember Them!

Father Peter Blesses the Advent Wreath

Fr Peter visited us during school meeting today to talk about the season of Advent and to bless our Advent Wreath. The children were excited to listen as this is the beginning of the season of Advent and the lead-up to Christmas begins this weekend. We will be lighting a new candle each week until the end of term to prepare for Christmas.

Bosco Society Donations

This week, we delivered special hampers of items, donated by our staff, to the Bosco Society Homeless hostel.  We would like to thank all of our wonderful staff for their generosity and kindness in the lead up to Christmas. James, one of the workers from Bosco, wrote to us to explain more about the charity, the work it does, and the impact our small donation will have:

“Bosco Society is a homeless organisation that provides supported accommodation to homeless people in Merseyside. Bosco was established in 1983 by Fr Booth who was a Salesian Priest, who named the project after Fr Don Bosco. Bosco House was opened as a hostel for young men in the Bootle area who were affected by substance misuse.

Today, we have two hostels that support 29 men and women with various support needs who are affected by homelessness. We also provide supported accommodation via 10 flats in the Bootle area of Merseyside.

Our Keyworkers provide individualised support to our service users that includes budgeting skills, daily living skills, employability, setting up utility accounts, and preparing for move-on, one to one emotional support and advice and guidance. The aim of Bosco Society is to improve people’s skills and confidence for them to move on successfully into their own accommodation.

After a very turbulent year, it was amazing to get a visit from Emma and Sharron from St Nicholas primary school. The donation we received showed such generosity from the staff of St Nicholas and will make a big difference to our service users this Christmas. The items donated, including toiletries, chocolates, food, and clothing will be evenly distributed to our service users and I’m sure they will all be delighted.

On behalf of all our staff and service users, I would like to thank St Nicholas for their kind and thoughtful donation and wish you all a very happy Christmas.”
