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.
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.
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.
Class 2 had a trip to Manor Park to celebrate the end of Keystage 1 SAT’S and as a reward for working so hard. The weather was lovely and they had a great time.
Six of our Year 3 children had their first Holy Communion today at All Saints Church. The school community was involved with Mrs King one of our Chaplaincy leads doing the readings, Mrs Deering and Mrs Beaumont did the Bidding prayers and some of the school choir attended with Mr Steane, thank you all so much. Special thanks to Mrs Beaumont for preparing the children and Father Martin. It was a day we hope the children will remember.
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.
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.
Today Mrs Quirke and 2 pupils from St. Charles brought the St. Ralph Sherwin Wheel to All Saints for the next part of its journey. We had a lovely assembly and it was great to take part with another school in our CMAT.
