October the Month of the Rosary

Year 2 children changed the entrance Altar.  They  planned a decade of the Rosary.  They planned what we would need for 'Gather'.  Look at what they selected. Then they led a decade of the Rosary to the whole school.

I selected blue cloth.  Mary wears blue.

We chose this statue of Mary.

We chose these Rosary beads.  They are really big.  Everyone will be able to see them.

School Motto

 

Each class started the school year off by reflecting on the school Mission Statement and Motto.

 

Do you know the Motto?

 

What does it mean to you?

 

How will you live out the Mission/Motto?

 

 

" I know the school motto. Little flowers growing and giving glory to God."

Excellent work.  This child received a Certificate for her knowledge about the school Motto.

Vocations Afternoon 15.09.21

Deacon Owen and Sisters Minor of Saint Francis visited all the classes.  They spoke about their vocation and answered lots of questions the children had prepared.

Do you think Jesus calls you?
