Dear Parents and Carers
“Happy Easter! May you bring to all the joy and hope of the Risen Christ!” Pope Francis
Congratulations to our Year 4 who led the school in a very moving liturgy which recounted the last moments that led up to Jesus dying on the cross.
The children sang beautifully and really made us all think about Jesus’ sacrifice. Well done Year 4.
Many thanks to all the parents and carers who joined us for the liturgy your presence helped make this a special occasion for all the children.
Today we celebrated our end of term Mass in St Simon’s Church and I must commend the children on their excellent singing and behaviour.
For details of services at St Simon’s over Easter please check out our Catholic Life page on the school website.
Lenten Fund Raising
Today we held our annual Easter Egg Raffle. This year we had so many eggs that every child in the school was able to take home an Easter Egg and we had many more which we raffled.
I must congratulate all who donated eggs for the raffle and for all our fund-raising during Lent. The generosity of everyone at the school is truly amazing.

The children are now on Easter Holiday and are due to return to school on Monday 17th April.
When the children return we will be celebrating the beginning of next term with Mass in the school hall followed by an Easter Blessing of the classrooms by Fr Hans on Thursday 20th April at 9:30a.m parents and carers are welcome to join us.
May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very holy and happy Easter. May we all return safely after the Easter holiday feeling refreshed and renewed.
With best wishes
Peter McCabe Headteacher
