Mission Week November 2017


November 6th - 10th 2017

St Patrick's Mission Week

 We are very pleased to announce the success of our first Mission Week   inspired by Pope Francis' letter to all humanity entitled 'Laudato Si'.

 In his letter, Pope Francis challenges everyone to work together to help   save  our world from destruction and to care for all people. We are asked to

 'Live wisely, think deeply and love generously' in all that we do in order that 'our common home' may be allowed to recover and thrive in the future.

 David Brinn from CAFOD visited school to launch Mission Week on Monday   November 6th and then each class spent the week fulilling their Mission

 Week Pledges which were as follows:

 Year R - Making 'friendship stones' to give to someone special

 Year 1 - Committed to feed the birds through the winter months

 Year 2 - Making connections with the elderly - visiting The Priory Nursing

 Home, Wellington. (singing and giving a small gift to residents)

 Year 3 - Fundraising to buy compost bins for school in order to re use our

 food waste and raise awareness to reduce the amount also.

 Year 4 - Recycling ambassadors for the school

 Year 5 - Fundraising for El Salvador (CAFOD Project) and making   Salvadoran crosses. They committed to spread the legacy of Archbishop Oscar Romero.

 Year 6 - Conservation - Project connected to The John Muir Award   involving research and presentations about the problem of plastics in the   oceans.


 All classes have begun their commitment to their projects during Mission   Week and aim to keep working towards fulfilling these pledges all through     the year. We finished the week with a liturgy in which all classes presented   to each other what they had been working on all week and shared photos of   their activities. Well done to everyone for all your hard work so far!
