They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.Laurence Binyon
Fr Graeme Thanks
A message from Fr Graeme: “Huge thanks for the many gifts received on my retirement as Parish Priest. It is quite overwhelming how generous everyone has been. The ‘surprise’ party in school was just as if my whole life was passing in front of me! The assembly was amazing and the children’s tributes were completely humbling. Over and above that, came the promise of a holiday and travel tokens from the staff and parents in school, a wonderful dinner with the governors and so many individual presents. It is also a great joy to me that I am still around and able to help in one or two ways. I cannot thank you enough and as usual, I must say I do not deserve it.”
Fantastic news from our target sports event! Our talented children from Years 5 and 6 participated in an exciting and challenging target sports competition earlier this week. They showcased their skills in various events, including bowling, basketball, boccia, javelin and more. The children had a great time and demonstrated exemplary effort and determination. To acknowledge their outstanding performances, each participant was awarded a well-deserved medal. We would like to give a special mention to Leo and Lois for their exceptional contributions. Well done, everyone!
In addition to our target sports success, our Year 5/6 girls’ football team participated in a thrilling competition at Talacre Sports Centre. Throughout the tournament, the team played a total of five games, winning one, drawing three, and losing one. The girls displayed incredible sportsmanship, competing against other schools with passion and respect. The experience not only highlighted their football skills but also allowed them to learn valuable lessons. Their care, courage, and cooperation on and off the field were truly commendable. Congratulations to the entire team for their spirited performance, with a special mention to Chloe and Daisy for their exceptional contributions.
We are incredibly proud of all our pupils who have participated in these sporting events. Well done, and keep up the great work!

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, by encouraging one another.Hebrews 10:24-25
Barnabas was known as the “son of encouragement” because he was constantly encouraging those around him. As the apostles worked to spread the good news and grow the church, Barnabas played a large role in encouraging and connecting people. He put his reputation on the line to encourage the apostles to accept Paul after his conversion. He mentored the young John Mark when others didn’t want to give him a second chance. As well as encouraging others towards love and good deeds, he set many examples of this himself; for instance, he also sold the land he owned and gave the proceeds to the early Christian community in Jerusalem.
At this time of remembrance, when there is currently so much happening around the world that saddens and worries us, the power of encouragement is more necessary than ever. In our sorrow as we remember the loved and lost and our concern for those in danger right now, let us be grateful for the love, support and encouragement of our close friends, family and colleagues. Like Barnabas, they help unite and strengthen rather than divide us, give us hope in times of difficulty, and encourage us in turn to show encouragement to others through our good deeds.
