It’s judging time.

The year 6 children put the finishing touches to the garden last week before it was judged by members of the rotary club.

The children have done a fantastic job and we get the results later this week.  We also have a resident frog now who loves the garden!!

50th Celebrations

To end the celebration of 50 years of St. Margaret’s, the ‘Friends Association’ arranged a garden party on Friday afternoon for pupils past and present.  The event was brilliant, as well as the current pupils we saw a number of older pupils return to the school to help celebrate.  We would like to especially thank Andrew Cartwright, Bernie Bowler and Claire Tabb for all their hard work in preparing for the event, as usual the result was spectacular.  Thank you also to one of our Governors Anthony McKeown for providing the below photographs of the event.

Start of St. Margaret’s 50th celebration

A fantastic Mass this morning with Bishop Patrick. The children behaved exceptionally. The children were excited and honoured that Bishop Patrick came to visit them. They had a party this afternoon and the ‘Friends Association’ organised for an ice cream van to come. It was all very exciting and a wonderful start to our celebrations to mark the 50th anniversary of St. Margaret’s Catholic school.

CMAT pupil day

Year 5 represented the Federation at the first CMAT pupil day. Pupils from all the schools in the CMAT went to Pride Park in Derby where they took part in a Q+A with Bishop Patrick, had an input from our charity Bluebell Wood and took part in some workshops. The day ended with a celebration Mass. Our children did us proud.

Visit to St. Mary’s at Marple Bridge

We took the St. Ralph Sherwin wheel to St. Mary’s at Marple Bridge this afternoon to continue it’s journey around the CMAT. We received a very warm welcome from the children who had prepared a lovely liturgy. Our pupils spoke well and did us proud.

Busy weekend for one family

It has been an exciting weekend for one family.  One daughter won first prize in a piano competition in Buxworth. She played “Turkey in the straw.”

The other daughter won a gold medal after taking part in a Gymnastics competition in Southport. The medal was for her performance on the ‘floor’. She travelled all the way to Southport with her dad on his motorbike.

Well done for your achievements girls

Cheerfest 2019

Some of our children went to the New Mill art theatre today to take part in Cheerfest 2019. We had two teams and they were both fantastic and did the Federation proud.

Four of the children won VIP tickets to watch the show from the Royal Box and eat lots of goodies.

Thanks to Mrs Deering and Mrs Parker for preparing the routine and taking the children.

 

Kick Boxing Champion

Well done to one of our pupils who won a  bronze medal in Kick Boxing at the Aberdeen open in Scotland.  It is an exceptional achievement as she has only been training for a year.
