Today we reflected on the events of Good Friday, following the Stations of the Cross around the playground.
Yes, it’s nearly here! The Sacred Heart Annual Tough and Muddy event! Sponsorship forms are being sent out today! Keep an eye out on parentmail for updates! #MrGilhoolyisbuzzing! #excited
What a fantastic morning! The children really enjoyed reading ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ - and there were plenty of laughs in the process!
Thank you to all who attended and helped deliver the fantastic activities!
Year 5 took part in a Live Blue Planet session this afternoon. The lesson showed us the impact that single use plastics are having on our oceans and life within them.
Prior to the session we submitted a range of questions… and believe it or not… 7000km away in the Bahamas, presenter Steve Backshall, after swimming with sharks, read out and answered one of our questions - Is is possible to develop a biodegradable plastic bag?

Year 5 are doing their bit in raising awareness across school about the dangers of plastics on our oceans. Our bottle top display is coming on nicely! We are just in need of yellows and blues if anyone has any - thank you! #Blueplanetlive #keepourseaplasticfree
The Golden Ticket Winners enjoyed their Christmas Lunch, served by the teachers!
We held our first pre-school play event this morning ‘Little Hearts’ and what a success! The children were all fabulous and all the children and bears had a fabulous time! We will keep you posted about any future ‘Little Heart’ Pre-school mornings! Thanks to all who attended.
Big THANKYOU shoutout to Year 6 children and parents, Mrs Eccles and Mrs McTigue for baking for/ buying for and organising this great event. Everyone who attended was thoroughly impressed by the children’s politeness and enthusiasm. We await the final total…..
Bishop Marcus received an enthusiastic welcome from the children, current staff, previous staff and governors on the 19th September 2018. The Chair of the Bishop Wheeler Trust, Mrs Hyde, and the Diocesan Director for Education, Mrs Cox, were also present.
A special Liturgy was celebrated to recognise the Golden Jubilee of the school being on its current site in Ilkley. The Bishop talked to the children about the importance of living their Faith everyday and also that we should all find ways to remember special events in all of our lives.
The children led the prayers and sang joyfully about the Fruits of the Holy Spirit with actions. In memory of his visit, the children presented the Bishop with a painting of the Sacred Heart symbol made with their finger prints. Each finger print represents a prayer for the Bishop’s intentions.
The school community gathered at Sacred Heart Church later on the same day for a Mass of Thanksgiving for the school. The historical documents show that it has been in existence in Ilkley since the turn of the twentieth century and has been known as Ilkley RC School, St Mary’s RC School and Sacred Heart Catholic Primary.
An exciting day today - Bishop Marcus is visiting school this afternoon for a special Celebration Liturgy. The school hall is full of photographs, memories and other memorabilia of the school’s history. The day will finish with a Mass of Thanksgiving in Sacred Heart Church at 6.30pm. Everyone is welcome.
