School / Parish Links
Fr. Tom is a regular visitor to the school. He answers a variety of questions about his role and his responsibilities within the church. The children use Father's answers to write an explanation text, providing information about the roles and responsibilities of a priest working in a Parish.
St Marie's Community celebrates Corpus Christi every year and the school and parish join together processing up the hill towards the church.
We then gather in the church for a Benediction Service.
The First Holy Communion children dress in their special outfits and the whole community sings throughout the procession.
First Holy Communion
St Marie's parish community celebrated First Holy Communion. The children looked wonderful and their behaviour was reverent.
We thank all those who attended and have helped the children on their spiritual journey.
'Make a splash' with Year 1.
The children in Year one made rain pictures using a technique called impressionism.
We decided to give our pictures away to our parents and grandparents for a small donation for the ‘make a splash charity’. We managed to make £40 pounds!!
We also wrote a prayer for those children who aren’t as lucky as us to have clean water and sent it up in a balloon.
