Some of our pupils were lucky enough to take part in a special gymnastics session last week. As part of the day the met the Olympic gymnast Kristian Thomas who won a bronze medal in the 2012 olympics, he gave a talk to the pupils. They really enjoyed the day.
Class 2 - Mrs Deering
School was open today despite the snow, and the children took advantage of the weather to go onto the field and play in the snow, they had great fun.
All the children attended Mass at All Saints Church this morning to say farewell to Father Gregory and to thank him for his support. Once the Mass was finished, the staff presented Father with a gift and then the children gave him cards that each class had made for him. He was then presented with a gift from the Governors. Thank you Father for your support over the years and we hope you enjoy your new Parish.
After a busy morning it was time to perform our Nativity. The hall was full, the lights dimmed and the children’s voices rang out. What a lovely afternoon, the performance was stunning, so proud of you all. Well done to the children and thank you to the staff for all your hard work
After the visit from Father Christmas all the children enjoyed lunch together.
We had a very special visitor to school this morning, Father Christmas. He took time out of his busy schedule to visit the children and brings them all a little gift. The children were so pleased to see him, thank you Father Christmas for taking time out of your busy schedule to come and see us.
All the children went to see Dick Whittington at Buxton Opera House yesterday. They had a brilliant time and enjoyed the performance, it was great to see all our children together having fun. Two of our younger pupils even got chance to take part on the stage with Dick Whittington, what an experience.
The choir visited Oakford Manor today to sing to the residents. They started in the lounge, then went to the rooms of those residents unable to get to the lounge so no one missed out. The residents loved it and some even had tears of joy. So proud of our choir.
Our choir went to sing for the local OAP’s at their Christmas lunch at the Queens Public House in Old Glossop. Father Christmas also paid a visit which was great. The choir were (as usual) amazing, and one of the audience commented “How do you get them to sing so beautifully?” I hope someone told them it was down to Mr Steane’s hard work – thank you Mr, Steane.
