Language Festival

In 2022 we held a Languages Festival to celebrate the diversity of our wonderful school community through language.  

The Languages Festival comprised of language activities both in class and across a central hub of stalls, each dedicated to a specific language, that children visited with their class year group. Behind the scenes, several language stalls were developed by our parent community, with each showcasing a specific language and culture. 

All the children were invited to come to school dressed in the colours of a specific flag. This could be the flag of a country that the child has a connection with, ie members of their family may have been born in that country or the child may have family currently living there. It was a wonderfully exciting day!

Corpus Christi

Our Corpus Christi Procession is an annual event which takes place in June. Our children and families donate flowers for each Altar and the local Parish community are invited to join with us. Please enjoy the photos below to see the beautiful procession.

Adoremus 2018

Adoremus 2018 was launched with our whole community at our celebration of the Corpus Christi where our Year 3s led the Blessed Sacrament procession.

Adoremus means 'Let us adore' and invites us to renew and deepen our faith in, and devotion towards, the presence of the Lord Jesus in the Eucharist - both in the celebration of the Mass and in adoration and prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

This year we will be using the Diocese of Westminster's Adoremus programme to increase our knowledge of the Eucharist, its history and our Eucharist faith.

Love in Action

We are proud to be a diverse community, fully representative of the Universal Catholic Church.

Our school is participating in LOVE IN ACTION a programme designed to help inspire the faith of our whole community. Developing each of us to preserve the dignity of all human beings, care for creation and to reach out to our sisters and brothers in need.

An essential part of the Catholic faith, the key values of Catholic Social Teaching (CST) are found at the core of the Gospel. The key themes of CST are:

- Human Dignity
- Community & Participation
- Care for Creation
- Dignity in Work
- Option for the Poor
- Solidarity and Peace

The key themes will be explored at various points throughout the year.

“We can all do something to extend the hand of friendship to those who need us.” Cardinal Vincent Nichols.

Monday, 7th November 2016 began a themed week which drew on the whole community's cultural heritage.

As hearts appeared on the SHINE tree there was so much going on throughout the school exploring the theme of SHINE TOGETHER

Together Stronger:  We thought about how we can work together to shine and also considered that Catholics do not shine on their own: we are STRONGER TOGETHER as a group of Christians.  We thought about the Christian groups in Stevenage and created a STRONG CHAIN and considered that it is Jesus that joins us together and helps us to shine brightly!

Beautiful Diversity:  We thought about our amazing diverse links across the world … a rich heritage that is also the rich heritage of the universal Catholic Church. Our ‘roots’ are a key part of our identity and help to make us who we are today; we celebrate this beautiful diversity and think about the beautiful rich tapestry that is created when all of the nations come together under our school roof.· All nations are called to be Jesus’ disciples – we all have a place in God’s family and we all share in his love.
