LEADING THE WAY FOR ADVENT

 Advent Service

Yet again, the boys & girls from our primary school led the way with an Advent Service at the beginning of this holy season.

HARVEST TIME AGAIN

Harvest Festival

Once again this year, our parish primary school, led us in a Service of Thanksgiving for God's gifts to us that we recall especially at Harvest Time.        

OFSTEDED!

St Clare's School

Our parish school has undergone a Section 8 (one day) Inspection. The outcome was as expected, the school was judged as 'good.' Her Majesty's Inspector who undertook the Inspection made some very complimentary comments about the way the school is managed and run. The pupils too, receive great praise.

THREE ON ONE

Confirmation

Well, four actually, if you count the baptism (and we do): The Summer Fair, the Day of Renewal and the Confrimations were all squeezed into one weekend, 'busy' was not the word for it.

ALL'S FAIR IN......

2024

All's Fair in - well not quite love and war, but certainly hard work and graft, and a lot of that goes into the annual Christmas Fair organised by St Clare's School & parish.

HARVEST THANKSGIVING

Harvest Festival

Once again this year, the boys and girls from St Clare's School led us in a Service of thanksgiving for the blessings of the harvest

SHINY FACES!

 

Beginning of Term Mass

"The whining schoolboy with his satchel and shining morning face, creeping like snail unwillingly to school." Well, Shakespere had it half right.

The boys and girls who attended the Beginning of Term Mass certainly had 'shining faces' but there was little evidence of 'unwillingness' or 'snail-like' creeping to school. On the contrary 'skipping' was the order of the day.
