P4 Do This In Memory Mass Sunday 5th February

It was lovely to see so many P4 pupils at yesterday’s DTIM Mass at St John’s church. The children participated well throughout, I was impressed with their focus during Fr Jock’s homily and whilst on the Altar. The Mass had a real family feel to it and it would be great to see the Primary 4 pupils in such numbers every Sunday.

Hibs tour delights pupils

On Tuesday 15 pupils were chosen to attend a tour of Easter Road Stadium, our thanks go to Mr Alan Henderson who arranged the tour. The group were met by Tom Wright, Hibs historian who led the tour around the ground. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and learned a lot about the history and traditions of Hibernian FC.

We are grateful to Hibs for the warm welcome, taking the time to invite the children to Easter Road and for the tickets to the Aberdeen game tomorrow.

Tell your grown ups about the Jesse tree and one of the stories. Today we were going to hear about King David. Learn the story of David and the Goliath and find out what happens to the boy when he grows up. https://www.dltk-kids.com/bible/cv/david_and_goliath.htm

Try this game with a grown up. Do you have any strategies to beat them?

Play in the snow! Stay cozy and we will see you on Monday! Miss Redman and Ms Morrison

New Beginnings Mass at St John’s Parish Church

Primary 3-7 joined parishoners at 1000 Mass this morning (Friday 30th September) for the New Beginnings Mass. This was the first time multiple year groups have worshipped together in church since January 2020.

P7 led the Mass beautifully, reading with confidence and being an excellent example to younger classes. Children from across the school sang hymns enthusiastically, and a big thank you to Miss Black for accompanying the singing on the piano.

As the term goes on we hope to have classes attending Mass on a regular basis, our next large school Mass is for All Saints Day on 1st November at St Mary Magdalene’s church and will be led by Primary 6.
