Remembering The Holy Souls - November 2023
During the month of November, we remember those Holy Souls who have gone before us. In our school chapel, pupils share memories and prayers dedicated to special loved ones and All Souls in our memory box.
Visiting our local church - October 2023
Our youngest (nursery) and oldest (Year 6) pupils visited our local church to learn about the Sacrament of Baptism.
The Rosary - October 2023
Each Wednesday morning at 8:30 during the month of October, we will be saying one decade of the Rosary together before the beginning of our school day. This month, prayers will be led by Father Tony and the Mini-Vinnies.
Farewell to Mrs Annette Broderick - Thursday 13th July
The whole school came together to celebrate the Eucharist and to give thanks for the years of dedicated service and commitment to Our Lady of Lourdes school by Mrs Annette Broderick. Mrs Broderick has served on the Governing Board for over thirty years, and more recently held the position of Chair of Governors tirelessly working behind the scenes for the wellbeing of the pupils. On behalf of the entire school community we extend our sincere gratitude, love and thanks for a life of dedicated service to the pupils of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School & Nursery.
Wacky Hat Day - Friday 30th June
We wore Wacky Hats to school to support St John’s Hospice who do wonderful work in providing care for people who are seriously ill. We hope to welcome staff from St John’s here at Our Lady of Lourdes at the beginning of the Autumn term to tell us more about their work and how they care for the dignity of other people.
Advent Mass at Five Precious Wounds Monday 28th November 2022
The whole school attended Five Precious Wounds Church to mark the beginning of Advent. Our Mini Vinnies read beautifully and bought up the Offertory. They were also called up during Fr. Tony's homily to admire and discuss the Advent Wreath. The children impressed Fr. Tony by telling him that the wreath is in the shape of a circle because it symbolises God's everlasting love for us. This week when we light the purple candle on the Advent Wreath, like the prophets in the Old Testament, we hope for a Messiah to save us from the sin in the world. We anticipate our Savior’s arrival.
