The week of 3-7 March was an eventful week. Charity stalls, to raise money for Hearing Dogs for the Deaf, were held during breaks on Mon-Weds, organised by house teams Luke and John. Stalls included a ‘touchy feely box’, where you felt inside the box and if you guessed the object inside correctly you won a prize. There were cake stalls, craft stalls and there was a competition to design a coat for Jamie, the hearing dog, that visited our School with his owner Maggie recently.
On Shrove Tuesday, staff and pupils made pancakes for the whole School in preparation for Lent. On Ash Wednesday the whole School went to Mass, at St Mary Magdalen's Church, with Father Joseph and Deacon Bill, to receive ashes in order to mark the beginning of Lent. This is a period of penance, fasting and contemplation in preparation for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday.
