Reminder- Bottle Cap Challenge!

Remember over the Easter weekend to collect bottle lids!  We need you (and your friends and families) to collect as many bottle tops/caps/lids as you can. We will be starting a fantastic new art project after the holidays and will need lots and lots of plastic bottle caps in lots of different colours.


See how many bottle tops you can collect over the holidays- bring them in with you on the first day back at school. The child who collects the most bottle caps will win 2 Class Dojo points! Good luck!

Good Friday

 Source: holycrossnyc


Today is Good Friday.

Today we remember the day that Jesus was crucified. It is a sad and serious day when we do not have special treats; some families might fast or avoid meat and the church will have no flowers and the statues might be covered. Today we observe the Stations of the Cross and we will hear the story of the Passion.

Maundy Thursday

Today is Maundy Thursday.


Today is the first day of the Triduum, when we remember the Last Supper. During the Last Supper, Jesus shared a meal with his disciples and then washed their feet.

This week many Jewish families will be celebrating Passover. This is a very special week for Christian and Jewish people around the world.

Watch this short video to remind yourself of the Easter story- we all know the story very well after rehearsing and performing our Easter play, but it is a very important week!

Good News!

Source: Easter Sayings

Congratulations to everyone involved in the Easter play- it was wonderful! We had lots of lovely comments and compliments about the production. Everyone agreed that it was the best Easter play yet!

Well done children- you worked hard and performed so well- you should all be very proud of yourselves. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we all did.

Thank you to all of the adults who helped us at school and thank you to parents, carers, friends and families who helped to make the excellent costumes and came to watch and support the Middle School.

Have a fantastic Easter!
