St. Hugh’s Feast Day
The 17th November is the feast of St. Hugh. On this day each year Fr. Aidan comes in to school to celebrate Mass with us and to help us remember all the great work that St. Hugh did. We have a swan on our school badge because St. Hugh had a pet swan. The swan looked after him and was very protective of him.
Last Christmas, the Gospel Choir sang at The Royal hospital as part of its 12 Days of Christmas celebration. Our children have just been presented with certificates to celebrate the fact that they helped to raise over £2000! Well done to everyone involved.
Advent Food Bank Collection
As always, our families have been so generous collecting food for the food bank during Advent. We have handed it over to the Children’s Centre to distribute on our behalf. Thank you to everyone who donated!
Advent Service at the Metropolitan Cathedral
Y4 took part in this year’s Advent service at the cathedral. The children enjoyed singing the Christmas carols and meeting children from lots of other schools. They took some toys on behalf of St. Hugh’s to donate to the Nugent Care Society and made a St
Visit to Royal Oak Care Home
Some of our choir were lucky enough to be invited to sing to the residents of the Royal Oak Care Home. The children were a credit to St. Hugh’s as always and the residents very much enjoyed listening and singing along. Many thanks to the residents and staff for welcoming the children into their home.
Our Gospel Choir visited the Museum of Liverpool to spread some festive cheer. They sang beautifully and received some lovely words of praise from visitors to the museum.
The whole school took part in lessons and activities to learn about Judaism. Y6 found out about Rosh Hashanah which is the Jewish New Year. They cut up slices of apples and dipped them into honey. Jewish people do this to show hope for a sweet new year. Rosh Hashanah is a celebration of family time, special recipes and sweet snacks. Y6 enjoyed their apple and honey!
Year 2 and Year 3 performed a beautiful assembly to help us understand the significance of Remembrance Sunday. Thank you to all the parents/carers who came along to make it a special occasion for all of us.
