Teaching Masses

 

We are working with Father Amal and Deacon to support our children in understanding the mass. We are sharing in weekly teaching masses in school, working together to provide the living experience of the mass for all of our children.

October is the month of the rosary.

The feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated on October the 7th.

The Rosary is a meditation in thought and word, it gives us an opportunity to reflect on the most important parts of the life of Jesus.

You can pray the rosary on your own or as part of a group.

You can use rosary beads to keep count of the prayers you are saying but you can just as easily use your fingers.

During the month of October, we will focus on praying the Rosary as part of our daily collective worship in school.

VALUES AND VIRTUES

 

 

Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Birmingham must ensure that as part of their Catholic teachings, values and virtues are now a key focus. The values and virtues show how pupils are growing in their faith as well as how schools help their pupils to grow. Schools can really emphasise a particular pair of words throughout a half term. Each half term the focus will change. It is the intention that across the whole of the Archdiocese , schools will focus upon the same pair of virtues at the same time. This will enable us to share ideas and resources and strengthen our common bond. The tables below illustrate this in full:

GRATEFUL AND GENEROUS

Grateful for their own gifts, for the gift of other people, and for the blessings of each day; and generous with their gifts, now and in the future.

ATTENTIVE AND DISCERNING

 Attentive to their experience and to their vocation; and discerning about the choices they make and the effects of those choices.

COMPASSIONATE AND LOVING

Compassionate towards others, near and far, especially the less fortunate; and loving by their just actions and forgiving words.

FAITH-FILLED AND HOPEFUL

 Faith-filled in their beliefs and Hopeful for the future.

ELOQUENT AND TRUTHFUL

Eloquent and truthful in what they say of themselves, the relations between people, and the world.

LEARNED AND WISE

Learned, finding God in all things; and wise in the ways they use their learning for the common good.

CURIOUS AND ACTIVE

 Curious about everything; and active in their engagement with the world, changing what they can for the better.

INTENTIONAL AND PROPHETIC

Intentional in the way they live and use the resources of the earth, guided by conscience; and prophetic in the example they set to others.
