Thank you

Thank you all so much for the lovely gifts, cards and words on my retirement they were brilliant and very much appreciated. I have had a wonderful 6 Years working for the Federation, the children were great and it was rewarding looking after them. The staff are fantastic both past and present and do so much for the children. I will still be bringing my grandchildren to school occasionally and look forward to seeing you all. Once again many thanks to you all and all the best for the future.

Well dressing

A group of children went back down to Church this afternoon to finish our Well Dressing. The finished product is amazing and the Parishioners were very impressed.

This is the finished dressing which will be on display after Mass on Sunday 16th July.

After all their hard work the children were rewarded with a drink and biscuit.

Well Dressing preperation

Year 5 children visited the Immaculate Conception Church today with Mr Steane to start work on the Well Dressing.

The children took turns  to work on the project with Mrs O’Connell and this year ours is St. Margaret. When they weren’t working on the dressing they created their own stained glass windows.


No wifi or mobile phone signal at Crowden Residential. But I’m at home now for the night, back in time for breakfast tomorrow morning. When I left everyone was happy and having a good time, about to depart on a night walk. All armed with their torches, in the bright evening sunshine!!!! We’ve had a good day – activities today included the zip wire, and team building and problem solving activities all in the grounds surrounding the house. We ate our packed lunches outside, and by tea time everyone was ready for the Fish and Chips or Macaroni Cheese. Chocolate Fudge Cake and Ice cream for pudding. Lots of clean plates. Everyone seemed happy with the room mates. Best activity of the day: putting on your own duvet covers and making your own beds!! Diane Noakes
