News & Events

October – Harvest Festival
To celebrate Harvest Festival, children in Y6 led a thought-provoking assembly about the work of CAFOD. The Mini-Vinnies arranged for a special ‘bright clothes’ non-uniform day that raised £150. The children also brought in items for our Selby foodbank box and, as you can see below, the final collection was amazing! Members of the Mini Vinnies group will be visiting the foodbank to make the fantastic delivery.

September - Virtues Day
We help a special virtues day in school. Through cross-curricular work the children learned how they can show, recognise and develop the following virtues in their own lives: wisdom, faith, self-control, justice, respect, love, hope and courage. This work is part of the ongoing character education that we teach in school.

September – New Mini Vinnies Appointed
We have four new members of the Mini Vinnie committee. Our group of Mini Vinnies do a great job in school helping to ‘turn concern into action’ by, amongst other things, supporting our class charities, writing to the housebound of the parish, entertaining residents at the local residential home and organising the school foodbank. Following an application form and interviews, the following children were commissioned to join the group: Molly West, Kitty Sheppard, Georgie Burns and Max O’Donnell. Congratulations to them!

September – New School Council Elected
Congratulations to our newly elected school student council. They have been democratically elected by their classmates and are looking forward to helping to further improve the school.

September – British Values Day
We had a great day in school celebrating the British Values of: democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs, we held a special British Values day in school. Each class studied these four principles through a range of cross curricular lessons and activities.
