|Welcome to The Rosary Catholic Primary School||
On the 7th the school attended mass to celebrate our school's Feast Day. Fr Luigi kindly presented each child and member of staff with rosary beads. He also reminded us that every time we say the Hail Mary, or a decade of the rosary, it is as if we are presenting Mary with a bouquet of flowers.
On Wednesday, six of the junior Apostles visited Westminster Cathedral. During our visit, we took part in the Children's Pilgrim Trail, admiring the awe and wonder of our surroundings. Particular highlights of the trail were the Cathedral’s amazing mosaics, marbles, bronzes and sculptures and the 1.6 meter wide baptismal font. We lit candles, said prayers and collected Holy Water for our Class Prayer boxes.
October is an important month for our school because it is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary.
Our school feast day is on the 7th October, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. We are called The Rosary because on the 7th October 1966 they started the building work of our school.
During the month of October, the Rosary Apostles meet with a different year group each day to pray a decade of the rosary. Children bring along their own rosaries and spend time at the statue of Our Lady asking Mary to inced their intentions.
On Wednesday 25th September Rabbi Zvi Solomons visited the children in Year 1, 2 & 3.
Year 2 & 3 experienced the layout of a Synagogue in the classroom. The children also learned about Jewish prayer and looked at Jewish prayer objects.
Year 1 sat around a Shabbat table and learned about Shabbat, the Jewish holy day.
