‘Come and See’
For many years, the school used ‘Hear I am’ to deliver religious education. The Archdiocese has introduced an exciting new programme called ‘Come and See’. Resources have been purchased and the programme has been rolled out across the school.
There is a dedicated website which can be accessed here.
Why do we have Catholic Schools?
This was the theme of the Training Day held at Belmont Abbey led by Dom Andrew Berry, a Benedictine Monk.
A copy of his presentation, together with notes and a document by Mgr Marcus Stock SJ can be downloaded below.
All staff are welcome to join us for Staff Prayers on Friday mornings in the staff room at 8.25am.
Our Prayer Team will be leading prayers, Bible stories and the Rosary in the Prayer Garden at lunchtime. Starting in Advent.
