ADVENT MASS 2023

Thursday 7th December

As we prepare for the coming of the Lord at the start of Advent, the pupils at St. Anne's School gathered together in Mass and sang the hymn "Awake, Awake." This hymn carries a message of anticipation and readiness for the arrival of Christ. With hearts filled with excitement and hope, the students' voices soared, filling the sacred space with the joyful melody.

The hymn's lyrics reminded the students and all those present of the importance of staying alert and awake, ensuring that they are spiritually prepared to welcome the Lord into their lives.

 

 

ANTI-BULLYING WEEK 2023

13th November -17th November

During Anti-Bullying Week, which started on November 13th, our school dedicated time and effort to raise awareness about bullying and encourage a kind and inclusive atmosphere.

 This year the theme was 'Make A Noise' and the theme was about empowering young people to do something positive to counter the harm and hurt that bullying causes.

One of the activities we took part in was Odd Sock Day. Odd Sock Day is a light-hearted event that is meant to showcase individuality and the importance of accepting others for who they are. This day allowed students to wear mismatched socks, celebrating their uniqueness and embracing diversity.

MUSIC SHARING CONCERT

26th October 2023

In our first music sharing concert of the year, each class performed the pieces they have been working on in their music lessons. This half term, the topic was 'Music through the Decades' and so each class learnt about a different musical era. They then studied artists from that particular era and performed pieces of music in that style.

It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase the many God-given talents across the school.

The budgeting session highlighted how to plan their spending wisely to avoid running out of money, introducing them to making mindful financial decisions through enjoyable activities and discussions.
