To celebrate the Integration theme of Everyone Outstanding all of the classes thought about who was outstanding in their lives. Some of the children thought about their own individual qualities and others thought about famous people who are outstanding.

The children's work was displayed in the assembly hall for all the parents to come along and see. Well done boys and girls your work is all outstanding!

Many thanks to all the parents who returned the Integration Questionnaires. 201 questionnaires were sent out and 99 were returned. This was a return rate of 49.2%. The findings have provided us with positive feedback and have also given us areas to consider.

We are due to renew our Kitemark Award this year for Integrated Education and the questionnaire has enabled us to gather information about the integrated ethos of our school and how we might improve it.

Congratulations to all of our pupils who made their First Confession on 8th March. The pupils received the sacrament with their peers from St Joseph's Primary.
The children worked really hard to learn their prayers and enjoyed learning about The Good Shepherd.
