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.

App ideas to support Literacy and Numeracy at home

The attached PDFs have been used for the past 9 years to advise schools and families at home about apps appropriate for Dyslexia support in literacy and Dyscalculia in numeracy. They can also be of use to develop general learner confidence in these areas of the curriculum. We hope you find them to be of use to you.
