This half term, our virtues are ‘attentive’ and ‘discerning’. In class and in assemblies, the children have spoken about what these words mean and about ways that they can be attentive and discerning at school, at home and in the community. These virtues also form the basis of our celebration assembly certificates on Fridays.
This term our virtues are ‘grateful’ and ‘generous’ and we have been focussing on these for whole school assemblies and in class collective worship sessions.
It has been a positive start to the academic year and it has been wonderful to welcome new families to our school community, as well as to welcome back familiar faces. We started the year with a whole school Mass in the hall to celebrate Our Lady’s birthday on the 8th September. Our assemblies this half-term are focussed on the virtues of ‘Grateful and Generous’ and we are talking about ways that we can be grateful and generous, both at school and in our homes.
As we come to the final weeks of school, it is once again an opportunity for our children to share their many talents with you and each other.
Our half termly virtues are ‘intentional and prophetic’. We have been talking about ways that we can share knowledge and make good decisions.
It has been another busy few weeks at St Aloysius’! The children have continued to showcase their Writing with display boards of exemplary practice around the school.
