School News: December

The Christmas countdown is now on, and preparations are under way for the Infant Nativity and Junior performances, and learning carols for the Carol Service. We hope you enjoy all the Christmas activities. Our children, parents and staff have worked hard to prepare for the Christmas celebrations, and we hope that you enjoy attending our performances!

Christmas Displays at Sacred Heart


The children and staff are looking forward to the return of Spellbinder and Lady Spellbinder for their Christmas storytelling, dancing and singing. The participation and behaviour of the children was superb last year, and it was a fantastic way to start Christmas.


The hugely popular and successful Spellbinder returns on 3rd December, which was one of the most memorable days of last year. I’m sure the children will be enthralled again, and I hope there isn’t too much embarrassing of our staff!

Operation Christmas Child

Thank you for your generosity for the charity Operation Christmas Child. We had a fantastic response from adults and children, and the we overwhelmed the collection point with all of the shoeboxes!


We are collecting your spare and unwanted clothes for the Fund 4 Schools collection. Bags have been sent home with the children, and the collection is on Friday 4th December, from 8.45am.
