Mayor’s Sunday

We were invited to take part in the Mayor’s Service this week. Our choir sang alongside Arundel C of E in a joint school’s choir performance. The two schools sounded wonderful. Well done to the Brownies, Cubs, Rainbows and Beavers who took part too and some very confident readers.

 

Mass of the Risen Lord

Last week we were able to all join together in the cathedral to celebrate the Risen Lord. The whole school, in separate bubbles, enjoyed thanking God for the life of Christ. Each family brought in flowers from home to decorate the cross which was placed on the altar. It was wonderful to be able to join together in worship.

Planting seeds for the Wildflower Project

The mayor came to help some of the younger children plant seeds int he school allotment. The seeds were donated by The Wildflower Project. One packet of seeds for every child. The younger children have planted the seeds on the school site but key stage 2 children have taken the seeds home to plant.

The idea is that the wildflowers grow and become food sources for bees who are pollinators.

We will wait to see what grows!

Fairtrade pancakes from Arundel Co op

Each February the school raises awareness of the importance of Fairtrade during Fair trade Fortnight. This usually includes one of the classes visiting our local Co op in the town. As a Fairtrade accredited school, we promote Fairtrade goods all year round.

This year, we were unable to go into the store as it was during the period of time when the school was closed for most pupils. Instead, Jackey Burzio, from the Co op, contacted us and asked if we would like some Fairtrade products.She delivered Fairtrade produce to the school for the children to make chocolate and banana pancakes.
