St Mary’s Passion

On Friday 11th April, the whole school took part in our re-enactment of the Passion of Jesus Christ. We processed around the school grounds and then congregated in the hall to listen to readings from all classes and the re-enactment of the Passion by Year 3. It was a wonderful celebration for Easter with some fabulous acting from Year 3 and wonderful singing of hymns and waving of palms by all the children.

Visit from Jones the Builders

On Tuesday this week, we had a visit from the foreman, from Jones the Builders on Chorley New Road to tell the children about the dangers of playing on a building site. Although this is not a major issue on the site, it is very useful and important for our children to be aware of the dangers associated with these areas. For example, he explained how easy it is to get into serious trouble or gain serious injury from something as simple as trying to retrieve a football that has gone over the fence. We need to be aware that there are many dangers involved on a building site from falling bricks, to dangerous gas canisters and chemicals.
