Year 3 receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist

Friday, 28 June 2019

On Sunday 23rd June, our Year 3 children received their First Holy Communion at St Philip Neri Catholic Church, led by Father Damien. Our children displayed great reverence as they continued their spiritual journey and were a credit to our school, Parish and their families. Thank you to everyone who celebrated this holy occasion with us – we were all so very proud of our wonderful children as they prepared to receive this Sacrament.

Year 1 Barry Island visit

Friday, 28 June 2019

After learning all about the seaside, Year 1 this week visited Barry Island. Despite the unseasonal June weather, the children had a wonderful time playing on the beach and at the fairground. One child commented that they’d a ‘brilliant time at the seaside!’ Thank you to all of the parent volunteers who supported Mrs Evans and Miss Cook during this visit.

Community Club awarded funding!

Friday, 28 June 2019

We are delighted to announce that our Community Club have been awarded £360 funding for our community project. Children from our Community Club ‘pitched’ an idea to representatives from ‘Shape our Future’ to support our community. Our idea was to use funding to set up our own parent/child baking club, develop our sustainable school garden and in time develop our own St Philip’s cook book with traditional recipes that celebrate our diverse school community. The Shape representatives were very impressed with our ideas as well as the confidence and knowledge of the children who pitched the idea – well done children, as always we are very proud of you!

To support our funding, we will be hosting a mufti day on Friday 28th June to raise our share of the funding (at least £60). Look out for news regarding the upcoming baking club!

Year 6 visit to Edgmond Hall

Water Safety Assembly

Monday, 10 June 2019

On Monday 3rd June, Sandwell Leisure joined us to deliver a water safety assembly.

The children learnt how to keep safe around pools, lakes, rivers and the sea and what to do if they, or anyone else, find themselves in difficulty by the water.

Most importantly, as we near the summer, the children were reminded to always let an adult know where they are going – especially if they are going to be by water.

Well done children for listening so well and asking such intriguing questions.
