We celebrated the feast of our School Patron, St. Gerard.
We began by celebrating Mass together as a whole school community. Children from the Spiritual Council prepared and led the Mass. They wrote their own bidding prayers, which were shared and selected the hymns, which were sang beautifully, making it a wonderful celebration!
During his Homily, Father taught us that despite living a life of poverty and ill-health, St. Gerard is a perfect role-model as his heart was always filled with compassion and he was known for his selfless nature.
After Mass, children went back to their classes and learnt more about our School Patron. They took part in a range of activities throughout the day including, artwork, producing fact files, making board games about his life, posters, creating puppets, writing prayers and much more!
