It has been such a busy yet enriching week at St Mary’s. Students from St Mary’s, St Cuthbert’s and Academy Extra took part in our Advent Festival on Tuesday. It was a fabulous reminder of the true message of Christmas.
The Sixth form planned and ran a party for Pensioners from our local community and large numbers of students took part in trips and activities as a reward for all of their hard work on Wednesday as part of our ethos day.
In PSHCE on Thursday students took part in an inter house quiz:
As well as a celebration of a traditional Polish Christmas Eve and a round of chocolate bingo amongst other activities.
Students also presented their gifts from the money they had raised as part of the advent appeal which are delivered to those who need a bit of extra help and support through the festive season. Student’s raised a whopping (and record breaking) £3747.37, well done to them all and thank you for your generosity.
Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year on behalf of the staff, students and directors at St Mary’s.
