Week 1 5th January Spring Term 2018

Welcome back everyone!

We hope you had a blessed Christmas and wish you every blessing for this new year ahead.

Although we have only been back two days, the children have been doing many things.  In preparation for today’s assembly to celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany, the children examined the story of the wise men visiting the baby Jesus and made their own crowns.  During a class Act of Worship, the children thought carefully about what gift they will bring to our school and their homes this year and offered these in assembly this morning.

The Epiphany is depicted in a mural titled "Adoration of the Magi" in the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception at Conception Abbey in Conception, Mo. Painted by Benedictine monks in the late 1800s, the artwork is the first appearance of the German Beuronese style in a U.S. church. Christians celebrate the incarnation of the divine word -- the birth of Christ -- Dec. 25. The feast of the Epiphany is Jan. 2. (CNS photo courtesy Conception Abbey) (Nov. 8, 2004)

Next week, the children will be going swimming on Wednesday so please remember your swim suits!  A letter was sent home to inform you of this.  We also have a special Class Mass on Thursday 25th January.  Please keep this date free in your diary.

Have a lovely weekend.

See you on Monday!


Mrs McNamara
