Working Together - Belonging Day

On Thursday 2nd February 2023, St Helen’s and St Joachim’s joined together in a Belonging Day.

In their own schools the children had been learning about their right to a name and the right to belong.
The children from each school prepared a tour of their school to show pride in where they belong. At each part of the tour, they had prepared activities. All children from both schools enjoyed being part of their new friend’s community. They enjoyed learning about a different school and learning with new friends.

St Helen’s once again enjoyed hosting the senior citizens Christmas lunch working with St Margaret’s parish.
The generous staff gave up their Saturday to have a fun filled day with the parishioners. It was a great day of food, drinks, raffles, bingo and entertainment.

 Children continue to help clean the convent after their class masses. They learn about the jobs within the parish community to keep our place of worship clean and tidy for everyone.

Pre-school in our local community
We went for a walk to visit our neighbours at the convent. We baked some cakes and brought them over. We enjoyed spending our time with all lovely sisters, sang some songs and danced together. It was great fun. We love our neighbours.
We visited the Convent Chapel before Lent began and saw all the beautiful statues and images in God’s house. We looked around the chapel and asked lots of questions about all the things we saw. We lit a candle and said a prayer for those we love and all those in need. We ask the Lord to watch over us all in peace and love. Amen.
