Parish News

If you would like to attend the Mass (Saturday 28thSept, St Mary’s) to celebrate the formal coming together of our churches please add your name to the list at the back of church by Sunday 15th.  

Also, Bishop John will be making a visitation of our three churches during the weekend of 21st/22nd September – further details will be announced shortly.

Class 1 Assembly

Class 1 present their assembly on Friday 20th September 10-10.30am, family and friends are very welcome to join us.


Please call in to speak to your child’s class teacher on Monday 16th September 3-4pm.  If you have not yet met your child’s new teacher, this is an excellent opportunity to do so, please call in.

Mass times

Please be reminded of the new Sunday Mass schedule for our church:

Saturday – Vigil Mass 6pm

Sunday – 10.45am

Packed lunches

If your child brings a packed lunch to school, they will bring all their rubbish home with them.  

This is to discourage waste, to enable you to see what they have and have not eaten, and to reduce the amount we have to dispose of as a school.  

I appreciate that this can result in messy lunch boxes but would really like your support in this.
