We have just arrived back from our whole school Carol Service; it was wonderful!
Teachers and children read some readings, while each class performed a carol. Some children danced, some performed and some children did solos. We certainly have ‘tapped into talent’ this year. Well done to all involved, especially our extremely talented music teacher, Mrs Walton.
Today we paid tribute to our wonderful parish priest Fr. Chris McCoy, as he celebrates 40 years ordination. We are so proud that he is part of our school community; he fills our school full of love, faith, fun and happiness.
We wrote our own version of the Twelve Days of Christmas to deliver him some gifts from us; 1 big hug, 2 pairs of socks, 3 books to read, 4 whisky shots, 5 chocolate bars, 6 mince pies and 7 Christmas cards!
We think he was really embarrassed but really pleased.
It was such a pleasure to see the Year 5 and Year 6 children go off to the cathedral, with their arms loaded with toys, for the children of Nugent Care.
The donations were purchased from the money that both classes had raised through their enterprise work this term.
We hope that we have been able to spread the Good News of Christmas around Liverpool this year.
We will be collecting toys and new pyjamas for the rest of the term for Action for Children.
During our whole school collective worship we focused on the words from St Francis of Assisi. We talked about ways that we could give this Christmas.
Obviously we spoke about the giving of money, and our children and families certainly did not disappoint! Today I have signed two cheques from our school. The first was £61.00 for ‘ Show Racism the Red Card’, the second was a staggering £330 for Children in Need.
Don’t forget we are also collecting Christmas gifts for Nugent Care.
In the spirit of giving the children have also pledged to: give hugs, make friends, share and help out at home with the Christmas preparation.
I really do hope that they keep their promises.
