There will be two performances of the concert: 1.00-1.50pm and 2.00-2.50pm. Two tickets per family will be allocated for this event - entry is strictly by ticket only.
On Monday 16th May, we will have a non-uniform day in school, to raise funds for ‘Jack’s Journey’
This wonderful local charity supports families of children with cancer, and we are keen to support them as, like many charities, their fundraising was affected by Covid-19.
We are asking families to support us with donations to the charity on Monday please (minimum suggested donation of £1).
Thank you, as always, for your support

💚 Next Friday, 11th March, the whole school is taking part in CAFOD’s ‘Walk Against Hunger’
💚 Our aim is to raise as much money as possible in support of CAFOD, an agency who support children and families overseas, who are in need.
💚 After joining a national assembly by CAFOD about world hunger, all our children will take part in a walk around the local area. Please give us a wave and say hello if you see us out and about!
💚 We are asking for a minimum donation of £1 per child - or why not sponsor your child to complete their walk and ask friends and families to contribute to this appeal too?
💚 This will be a non-uniform day in school, but please remember that children will need to wear clothing (and footwear) that is suitable for the weather, and for walking!
💚 Please support us if you can. Thank you

We will celebrate British Science Week in school from Monday 14th to Friday 18th March.
Just some of the exciting events we already have planned are:
WORLD BOOK DAY: Thursday 3rd March
📚 For World Book Day this year, our theme will be: 'Super Heroes Love to Read'!
📚 Children should wear their favourite super-hero costume for school and bring their favourite book to share with friends.
📚 We will also be organising an 'extreme read' competition - where children will be encouraged to send in photographs of themselves reading in the most extreme places or situations (obviously with supervision form their parents or carers!)
📚 Each class will also choose a special, fun activity from our World Book Day Bingo selection, to take part in on the day.
📚 We will also enjoy a visit from an author and a poet during this week so, all in all, this will be a fun and exciting week, which celebrates our love of reading at Our Lady & St Patrick's!
'Mary's Meals' Fundraising Event - January 2022
💙 Our charities and fundraising committee are organising a raffle and lucky hundred square next week in school, to raise funds for ‘Mary’s Meals’
💙 This is a charity that supports children across Africa, providing hungry children with life-changing school meals.
💙 Until the end of January, all donations are match-funded, so £1 becomes £2 and this means that £15.90 will feed TWO children for a whole year!
💙 Raffle tickets and a lucky number on the hundred square will each cost £1 - we would be delighted if you could help us to make a difference to the lives of children across Africa. Please support us if you can 🙏
