Dear Parents and Carers


“Let us prepare to celebrate Easter in the joy of God! Christ is risen! Christ is alive!” Pope Francis


Today Year 4 led the whole school in our Passion Reflection when the children reminded us about the journey that Jesus took to his crucifixion and death on the cross and then to his burial in the tomb. We all look forward to the promise and joy that Easter brings. Thank you, Year 4 for a very moving liturgy.


This Sunday is Easter Sunday the greatest day in the Church’s calendar. This day reminds us that Jesus, the Son of God, offers each one of us a share in his everlasting life and eternal happiness.


Below I have listed the main Mass times of the Easter Triduum at St Simon’s Church:

Maundy Thursday            8:00p.m Mass of The Lord’s Supper

Good Friday                        9:30a.m Stations of the Cross 3:00p.m The          Passion of Our Lord

Holy Saturday                    8:30p.m Easter Vigil Mass

Easter Sunday                   10:00a.m Mass Easter Morning 6:30p.m. Easter Mass

Lenten Fundraising

A great big thank you to everyone for the tremendous fundraising during Lent we have raised over £2000 towards our charities. I will give a final breakdown of what we have raised when all the funds have been collected and counted. The great generosity of everyone at the school needs to be celebrated. This must be one of the largest amounts of money that we have ever raised during Lent. Thank you everyone.


Today we held our Easter Egg Raffle and we had nearly 300 eggs to raffle which meant that all the children left with at least one Egg. This could not have happened if it wasn’t for the kind donations of eggs that were still coming into school this morning. Well done all at St Simon’s.
