Feast Day Talent Show 

Children in Year 3 – Year 6 entertained us with their talents including singing, dancing, playing musical instruments and gymnastics for our Feast Day Talent Show.

Year 6 Leavers’ Mass July 2022

Today we gathered to celebrate and give thanks for the many blessings we have received during the school year. We thanked God for: all the new knowledge we have gained; all the new skills we have learned and developed; all the friendships we have enjoyed; all our successful moments and all the difficulties that we thought were huge but which we got over in time and with God’s patience.

We gathered also to ask God’s blessing on all our pupils and staff leaving our school. Our Mass marked the end of Year 6’s journey at St. Mary and St. Michael School, but the beginning of a new chapter as they move on to secondary schools.  We remember that, even through times of change, God’s love remains constant.​
