St Mary's Infant School Newsletters
Friday 5th April 2019
Dear St. Mary's Parents and Carers,
We have come to the end of our second term.
This week has been all about our preparation for Easter. On Monday and Tuesday the children shared the Stations of the Cross and on Thursday we had RE day. All the children worked with different teachers around the school to re-enact the Easter story i.e. The last supper, Palm Sunday, Jesus washing the feet of his disciples. They also produced beautiful art work and music. Please remember to ask your children what they did.
On the first day back after Easter (Tuesday 23rd April) we will be be celebrating with our annual Easter Bonnet Parade from 2.45 p.m. in the KS1 playground. Please come along and join us if you can. On this day the children will also be selling cross keyrings and fridge magnets that they have been making for the past two weeks. They will be selling them for £1 each and all money will go to Missio which Since 1922, has been the Catholic Church’s official charity for overseas mission, bringing the hope of the Gospel where there is turmoil, poverty and uncertainty in the world, and where the Church is new, young or poor. The money you have kindly been donating by buying biscuits this week will also go to Missio.
We do thank you for all your donations and your support in nurturing this fundamental Christian value of helping those less fortunate than ourselves. This is at the heart of our Catholic Schools, as it says in the Bible:
‘Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ’ Galatians 6:2
I wish you all a happy and blessed Easter and look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 23rd
Kind regards Miss O’Callaghan
