‘I feel that my child’s relationship with Jesus has really begun now, nurtured by his teacher through prayer and by kindness and gentleness.’ (Ofsted Parent View)
It is with great sadness that our school learned of the passing of Father Douglas who was an integral part of our community at Our Lady of Lourdes. He is remembered with great fondness by everyone, and our sympathies and prayers go to his friends and family.
As a Catholic Primary School, we keep Christ at the very centre of everything we do.
Our school vision is firmly based in the Catholic Life that we share, and our motto of ‘Live, Love, Learn’ is founded upon Christ’s commandment to ‘Love one another’ (John 13 verse 24) – something that we try and show in every single day of our life at school.
We are a Catholic School and disciples of Christ:
– All are welcome.
– We keep the Word of God close at all times.
– We are witnesses for Christ.
– We worship together.
– We look after each other.
– We seek to reveal God to each other as part of our daily lives; in everything we say and do!
During a Friday Liturgy and Celebration Assembly, Father Benny visited to help us burn the Palms in preparation for our Ash Wednesday Service which saw the whole school attend Mass at our parish church.
