Fisrt Holy Communion - 25th June
Congratulations to our year 3 children as well as Logan and Niah, who made their First Holy Communion this afternoon at St. Mark's Church. It was a lovely mass and the children all looked wonderful!
Well done to our St. Mark's girls football team for their excellent efforts this year. They have played two matches in total: they lost 2-0 against Broadoak and 3-1 against St. Mary's. They may not have won but they played very well and represented St. Mark's so brilliantly - they made us all very proud!
Basketball Tournament - 16th June
*CONGRATULATIONS* to the boys who represented St. Mark's at the interschools basketball tournament this week. Team A came first and brought home the trophy after winning all 5 of their matches, whilst Team B came second in their group after winning 3 games and drawing in 2. What a superb effort!
St. Mark's Boys Football Match - 14th June
Well done to our St. Mark's boys football team who fought hard in their match against St. Mary's on Tuesday. At half time they were 3-0 down but they didn't give up and went on to score 2 goals in the second half, the final score being 4-2 to St. Mary's. A special well done to Shay who was named 'Player of the Match'.
This week we have had lots of fun celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubliee:
Classes have made colourful Jubliee decorations to hang in their classrooms this week. The children have been given the opportunity to have their photograph taken on the St. Mark's throne wearing a golden crown and were then given a commemorative keyring to take home.
On Thursday, each year group were asked to come in dressed in the fashion of different decades in honour of each decade the Queen has reigned our country. After a song-filled celebration assembly, the children enjoyed a 'Jubliee Tea Party' for their dinner.
On Friday, children were asked to dress in red white and blue and bring in their own homemade crowns. Parents were invited onto the school field to watch the children parade in their crowns.
A fantastic week has been had by all!
