First Holy Communion

We are pleased to celebrate and share that Giuseppe S, Kori P, Seth N, Jack W, Jack K, Kornel M, Lilly-Rose M, Eva M and Sophie Z have all received the Sacrament of Holy Communion. Our thanks go to the All Saints catechist team who worked hard to prepare them so well for this milestone and as a school we look forward to continuing to support them in their faith journey.

 

Harvest – Support for the SVP food bank

On Thursday 7th October we will be celebrating a virtual Harvest Liturgy with each class coming together online to give our school family the chance to consider the needy, who don’t always benefit from the bountiful summer harvest. That’s why we are encouraging children, if possible, to bring donations for our local SVP food bank. The donations will be displayed in the hall to remind us all that celebrating harvest festival is also a time for thinking of others – they will be picked up and distributed within our local community on Friday.

 

Fitness Sessions

On Friday 8th October, we have Forces Fitness sessions running across Yrs 2-6. Please could these classes wear their PE kit on this date.

 

The Feast of St. Gabriel

Thank you to Fr. Roman who celebrated a lovely mass for the patronal feast day of St. Gabriel which we were able to access in each classroom via the parish online streaming service.

Current COVID Guidance to Schools from Welsh Government:

Anyone with symptoms – a new continuous cough, fever or high temperature or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste – should book a PCR test and remain in self-isolation until the test result is known. You can find the latest information on self-isolation arrangements at www.gov.wales/self‑isolation.

 

Those who are under 18 or fully vaccinated are no longer required to self-isolate if they are identified as close contacts. But they will be contacted to let them know that they’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. They will also be offered two PCR tests and provided with information and advice on how to minimise the risks of onward spread. If your child is identified as a close contact, they can still attend school unless they develop symptoms or are advised otherwise by TTP. Please continue to let us know if your child tests positive.

If a child tests positive, only a minority of their classmates will be identified as close contacts. But if there is a pattern of cases TTP may ask us to update you on the situation and remind you of key steps, including advising you to keep an eye out for new symptoms your child may develop, and to stay away from vulnerable family and friends in the short-term.
