Farewell Mrs Mills!

Class Three performed Jabberwocky for Mrs Mills in her farewell assembly this morning!  They have been studying it with her this term and thought it would be a fitting tribute.  We all wish Mrs Mills a happy, peaceful and well-deserved retirement x

 Welcome to our Gallery!

Here we have photos of lots of different occasions for you to see. ENJOY!

Some of our children attended an Armistice Day Service at Bungay Cemetery and read some poems and prayers they had written.

 

 

 

In November we had a visit from Caradh O'Donovan who is an Irish Karate Gold Medalist, and she showed the children some moves and they joined her for a work out in the school hall!

 

The Mini Vinnie group from St Benet's Primary School visited the local care home in Beccles to sing carols, bring gifts and talk to the people living there. They had previously raised money through a bring and buy toy sale at school and from this decided themselves how they wanted to spend the money to cheer up the residents. They chose little glittery Christmas trees, baskets of Christmas flowers, special cordials and CDs of Christmas songs to give as gifts to the people of the home. 
The carols were sung beautifully and were all well received by everyone, who joyfully sang a long to Jingle Bells and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. Some residents even had an impromptu sing song in their rooms courtesy of the children. 
It was such a success that they eagerly suggested to the staff at the home that they come back throughout the year to read to the residents, play games or just generally chat to them about their lives. 
Mrs Barlow ( Head of School) and Mrs Mills ( Class Teacher) couldn't have been more proud of their dedication, empathy and willingness to give to others. They certainly represented the Mini Vinnie's philosophy superbly and the ethos of our Catholic school.
