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 The historical documents show that it has been in existence in Ilkley since the turn of the twentieth century and has been known as Ilkley RC School, St Mary’s RC School and Sacred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.
Our school's families are all most welcome to our Awards' assemblies (please check the Annual Event calendar on this website for all of the dates).
The children are encouraged to bring in certificates and awards that they have received at out of school activities.
The teachers and lunchtime staff present awards for a wide range of reasons across the school year.
We look forward to seeing many of you at these assemblies.
