Boys Football News, by Mr Lavin

Date: 1st Jul 2015 @ 9:41pm


Our boy's football team have made in through to the FINALS of the Manchester Primary Football League!! What an amazing achievement!!!

This evening, they knocked out St Catherine's in a nailbiting match! Mason started the scoring with a wonder goal (it should have been 4-0 by this time). Soon after, St Catherine's won a goal back bringing the final score to 1-1. The draw meant a penalty shoot out was next! The boys, parents and spectators were all feeling angsious, but with the 'Slaniator' in goal, who needed to be nervous! He saved every single penalty that was taken, seeing us safetly into the finals! I am so proud of the boys as will be the whole school! Keep an eye out for the final dates soon!!

Year 4 Swimming - 30/6/15, by Mrs Whelan

Date: 23rd Jun 2015 @ 8:36pm

Next week's swimming lesson sounds sure to be an exciting one! Children have been asked to bring a pair of pyjamas to wear for their lesson! These should preferably be long trousers and a top, but shorts are suitable too. No onesies or nighties please! Children still need to bring along their usual swimming kit (to wear underneath) and towel, and we also ask that you bring a large carrier bag or bin bag so that the children can put their wet things into it for the rest of the day. I can't wait for what sounds like it will be a super fun lesson!

Date: 13th Feb 2015 @ 12:53pm

On Friday 13th February, Year 5 and 6 children celebrated their class mass.

The children prepared the readings, choose the hymns and participated in each part of the mass.

If was the first time that children sang the new mass - this was met by great appreciation by Father Chris.

The comments the children received after mass were outstanding! Many asked if the children could come each day! 

It was great to see so many smiling faces around the school and I know Mrs Bramhall and Father Chris were very proud and pleased with the children.

Feel free to have a look at the Mass Booklet below.
