Semi-finals here we come!!!

Year 4 secured their place in the semi-finals of the dodgeball league this evening, beating Ashlands by the narrowest of margins - 6-5. We play our next game on Monday 4th December at 3.45pm against Burley Woodhead. Those involved please keep a close eye out for any parent mails tomorrow. 

This is the furthest we have ever progressed in the league before. Well done boys and girls!

PARENTAL CONSULTATION OPENS for Model Policy for 'Relationships and Sex Education'

Parents are the first educators of their children. It is their right and responsibility to inform and educate their children in matters relating to human growth and development, particularly sexual development. Therefore, schools should always seek to work in partnership with parents and carers and the teaching offered by schools should complement and not replace their primary role. The Church has a special duty and right to educate as part of its mission, and a Catholic school is the principal means by which it assists parents in their duties.

Some parents and carers experience and express difficulty in discussing relationships and sex with their children. The school has a privileged role in collaborating with parents in their educative task and seeks to offer advice and to support them in this situation. This supportive role will be exercised with sensitivity.

Solid start to the new season...

Years 5 and 6 boys had a solid start to the new football season on Friday after drawing against Ben Rhydding. There was some silky play from Giancarlos and both Thomas' upfront. It was a one sided game with us continuously testing the oppositions keeper... little did we know their keeper was a distant relation of the one and only GianLuigi Buffon... Well done to the Ben Rhydding keeper but more importantly well done to the boys for a fantastic start to the season!
