Week Commencing 20th March 2017

Congratulations to our ‘Young Journalist’ who were invited to the final of the Staffordshire University on Friday.

This week we begin by celebrating the Feast of St Joseph.
St Joseph’s day was on Saturday 18th March.
St Joseph is the Patron Saint of our school.
He is the Patron Saint of Carpenters and we pray to St. Joseph as the protector of the dying.

St. Teresa of Avila chose St. Joseph as the protector of her order of Carmelite sisters. She had a great trust in his prayers. "Every time I ask St. Joseph for something," she said, "he always obtains it for me”.
He carried out this vocation with complete fidelity until at last God called him, saying 'Good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of your Lord.' -St. Bernadine of Siena

This week it will be Prep 4’s turn to undertake Fund raising activities for Lent

On Monday 20th March at 1-30pm, Father Rob will be celebrating Mass for the Feast of St Joseph. Parents and carers are most welcome to join us at St Teresa’s church.

On Tuesday 21st, Wednesday 22nd and Thursday 23rd March we are holding Pre Prep and Prep Parents evening between 3-30pm to 8pm. Please contact the school office if you have not made an appointment.

On Friday we will be holding the Early Years and Pre Prep ‘Mother’s Day’ assembly. This will commence at 2-30pm in the school Hall. EYFS and Pre Prep parents are most welcome to join us.

Throughout the course of the week I will be welcoming visitors to look around our school in readiness for their children to join us in the Summer term or in September 2017.
