Dear Parents, Caregivers and Friends of St Mary’s School,
As you hear repeatedly on the radio, television or read in the paper, only ten days to go until the beginning of the Rugby World Cup. While it is a sporting event it also presents a unique opportunity to learn more about the diverse countries and cultures that will be taking part. As a school wide topic we have chosen this theme to encourage pupils to find out more about cultures other than our own and to develop an understanding of how huge and diverse our world is.
Last week I was privileged to watch our pupils perform in the ‘Stars on Stage’, the standard of their performance was exceptional and they looked to be really enjoying themselves. A huge thank you to Miss Cooper and all of the other people who helped in any way.
Tonight our Choir is performing in the biennial Catholic Schools Music Festival. They also have been practicing very hard and I know that Mrs Dillon has been putting in a huge effort with this group of pupils.
Thank you for all of your donations for our mufti day today. Hopefully this will make a real difference to the people struggling in our community. Remember the old saying ‘charity begins at home’.
Have a great week,
