Message from Mrs Anderson…
Thank you to all of you who joined us this morning for the CAFOD Race for Women event. It was brilliant seeing all of the children both walking and running and challenging themselves to go further, in their sporting mufti. The children were very enthusiastic about taking part and supporting. It made it even more special having both parents and grandparents supporting the children. The children were very excited that you were joining them.
We will be able to let you know how much we raised next week.
Friends of St Paul's: Last evening we had a very productive meeting with a core team of FOSP members. Mr Chebcheb has resigned from his position as Chair due to other commitments. On behalf of FOSP, the school and the governing body I would like to thank him for taking on this role earlier in the year and his support during that period. We are delighted that Sarah Skelton has agreed to take on the role temporarily, in the first instance.
During the meeting we agreed many dates for the next academic year- details will follow shortly.
Dates for this term:
Friday 3rd July School Disco
Camping on the school field 16th and 17th July. Details from Mrs Reid.
Teddy Bear’s Picnic lunch: On Monday the year 3 class have organized the picnic lunch for the school. They have planned this very carefully with support from Mrs Sullivan, the school cook. Weather permitting the whole school will be having a picnic lunch on the school field- many of the children are bringing their Teddy Bears! Thank you, year 3 for organizing this, it should be great fun.
St Boniface Littl’uns: Year 5 boys are going to ST Boniface College for the day on Monday. We hope they all have a wonderful day carrying out different learning with the staff at the College.
Mass: Thursday 25th June- there will be a Whole School Mass, please join us from 9.30am.
Father Tim… Sunday 21st June (Gospel : Mark 4 : 35 - 41)
“Who can this be? Even the wind and sea obey him?” The disciples in the boat were amazed when Jesus orders the wind to be still, tells the gale to stop blowing, and it does; they are about to sink in a storm, and Jesus saves them. But how can he give orders to the weather? Because of who he is. Jesus is the Lord who was with God in the beginning, through whose word the heavens and the earth were made. Such a dramatic miracle presents us today with a choice about Jesus and the Church. We have to decide. Did this actually happen or is the entire gospel just one big con-trick? If we decide that it did happen, and Jesus really is the Lord of heaven come down to earth, then everything else he said and did is true as well, and we need to take him seriously and try our best to follow his teaching in our lives.
