The school council were very excited to invite Amanda Milling MP into school today. They interviewed her and asked her lots of questions ranging from the Governments actions on climate change to how she is helping to improve our local area.

Our Mini Vinnies group represented our school at the ACN Red Wednesday Mass at St Chads Cathedral in Birmingham.


To mark Red Wednesday all the children and staff dressed in red and took part in a livestream assembly where we talked about why we mark Red Wednesday. We prayed for all those people around the world who are persecuted or discriminated against because of their faith or beliefs and raised money to support the great work of #AidToTheChurchInNeed


The Season of Creation- thank you to all our parents and carers who have completed a pledge as a commitment to care for our wonderful world. A huge difference can be made through a number of small actions. If you haven’t already, please complete your pledge on the strip of paper your child has brought home so it can be added to the children’s pledges on our “Pledgehog” Please read the information leaflet which has been emailed out - caring for our common home - for some ideas! Thank you! #livesimply

We were blessed with St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and Nursery, Hednesford today to take part in our 'Insect Week' workshops. Thank you to everyone who took part and made insects for the exhibition pieces for our displays and RicNic. #InsectWeek is organised by The Royal Entomological Society to inspire interest and learning about insects in all ages.

Year 5 have taken part in a community initiative as part of their work on Catholic Social teaching focussing on being stewards of creation. 

"In the first pages of the Bible we read how God created the sun and the stars, the water and earth, and every creature. We believe Christ is the redeemer of all creation."

In 2015, Pope Francis brought together decades of Church teaching in the encyclical, Laudato Si’. In this deeply influential letter, Pope Francis invites everyone on the planet to consider how our actions are affecting the earth and the poorest people. Everything is interconnected, and all of creation praises God. It is our Christian vocation to care for creation.   


Today Year 4 all wore red to mark Red Wednesday. This is an annual event organised by Aid to the Church in Need highlighting the suffering of Christians around the world who are persecuted because of their beliefs.

The Mini Vinnies planned and led a prayer service and the children prayed for families and children all over the world who are suffering violence for being a Christian.
