Special Events 2017-2018

 There's always plenty going on at our school - such as day trips, visitors who come to school to entertain or work with the children, and other special occasions during the year. On this page you can look back on some of our special events, and share the memories with us

Tuesday 19th December

Friday 15th December

Children from Year 5 and Year 6 represented the school at the Caritas Christi In Urbe Carol Service at St. Chad's Cathedral. 



Monday 20th November

Today we played a new and exciting game called...BOCCIA!

William (Year 6) Hassan, Gerrard (Year 5) and Thanh, Kacper, Aden (Year 3) were invited to St. Francis school to take part in the Boccia tournament.

Boccia is where you have a Jack ball (target ball) in which you have to aim your team's ball as close to the target as possible. It takes great concentration, accuracy and precision.

We are very pleased to say that St. Teresa's came second place out of 7 schools competing.


Monday 31st October

Although we all belong to a large Catholic family of St Teresa's, today we celebrated our diversity by wearing our cultural and traditional clothing or colours! We represented many countries far and wide such as Jamaica, India and Poland and some closer to home e.g. England and Ireland.
