Year 2 children enjoyed 'reflecting' in our Remembrance Prayer Space.

We learnt that every dance tells a story from the Hindu religion. The dances were rather tricky but all the children tried so hard. What great little dancers they are :-)

Year 3 - living the ' Last Supper' and washing each other's hands.

After watching an adaptation of the Apostles' reaction to the Resurrection of Christ, the children role played Doubting Thomas' reaction of "I'll believe it when I see it."

Reconciliation Saturday!

 

On Saturday the 7th of March, we all attended St. Peter's Church to make our First Reconciliation.

Father John and Father Brian.

 

Most of us went to see Fr. John and we were really nervous  at first, (Miss Jenkins too!) but once it was over and we said our Act of Contrition, we were so proud AND we even got a certificate! frown
