Christmas Closure

Dear Parent / Carer, 

The school closes for the Christmas holidays on Friday, 20th December at 12:30 pm.  

We will be taking the pupils to St Mary’s Church for our annual Mass and Carol Service in the morning.  The pupils will be walking to Church with members of staff.  

The Mass and Carol Service is due to start at about 11:00 am and you are most welcome to join us in the Church for the service. The pupils will be dismissed from the Church and we have arranged for the buses to collect the children from St Mary’s Church on Broadfield Drive, Leyland at 12:30 pm. 

May I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and peaceful Christmas.  

Yours sincerely,                                       

Mr P Thompson


Christmas Jumper Day 2019

Dear Parent / Carer, Christmas_Jumper.png

Christmas Jumper Day – 13 December 2019 

As we rapidly journey through Advent, it is the perfect opportunity to reflect on our school nominated charities and raise a bit more money for them; but have fun at the same time! 

To spread the ‘Joy and Peace of Christmas’, I would like to invite your child to wear a festive Christmas jumper on Friday, 13th December 2019.  This would replace the school jumper for that day only.  Should your child wish to participate, they are encouraged to bring £1 in on that day and to give the money to their form tutor.  All money raised will be divided equally between the charities CAFOD and Nugent. 

If your child does not wish to participate in this event, they can come to school in their usual School uniform and they will not be charged £1. 

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you and your child for the donations that you have made throughout the year to support our charity events. 

May I be the first of many to wish you, your family and friends a very peaceful Christmas.  May this Christmas season fill your home with joy, your hearts with love and your life with laughter. 

May the Lord Our God bless you all. 

Yours sincerely,  

Anthony Cave

School Lay Chaplain
