Crowning of Mary at St Teresa's
On Friday 19th May, we took time to celebrate Mary, the Mother of Jesus and us all, in her special month of May.
To mark this special occasion, we were all invited to bring an offering of fresh flowers, which were later blessed by Fr. Piotr during our blessing service in the afternoon. Not only did Fr. Piotr bless our flowers, but he also took the time to bless Mary herself and her crown of flowers that we placed with her. Our altar was adorned with a huge range of beautiful flowers to mark just how special she is to us all.
The Blessing of Our Sacred Heart of Jesus
On Thursday 18th May, after our Ascension Day mass, Fr. Piotr joined us for our walk back to school to view and bless our new 'Sacred Heart of Jesus' statue.
Along with our Avilites group, Fr. Piotr lead us in a short reflection and time of prayer as he blessed our special statue.
Next time you visit us, please do take a moment to view our statue - we are incredibly proud to have Him watching over our school, guiding and keeping us safe always.

Jesus Has Arrived!
After lots of organisation from Fr. Piotr & Mr Gizzi, we are very excited to announce the arrival of a Sacred Heart of Jesus statue that has been kindly donated by Fr. Piotr & the parish of St. Teresa of Avila. We have chosen to give him pride of place right outside the front of our main office. Please do take time to admire him when you visit us next.
Year 5 Easter Pageant - Wednesday 29th March 2023
Year 5 perform the Passion Play at St Teresa’s Church!
We were so proud of our Year 5 Panda children who have worked incredibly hard over the past few weeks to prepare for our Easter Pageant.
Joined by the children from our school, staff, parents, families and our parish community, we all made our way to St Teresa’s church to see the children perform the Easter story.
An enormous amount of thanks to the support of Mr Lines and Mr Gizzi, the children had learned all their lines and projected their voices beautifully throughout the church. Amazing acting skills were on show as the children sensitively and beautifully took us through the Stations of the Cross. The retelling was an emotional experience for all.
A huge well done to everyone involved in this event. You represented our school so well and we are incredibly proud of you all.
Avilite Lenten Reflections - Lent 2023
In the lead up to Easter, our Avilites have been very busy preparing and delivering Lenten Reflections for our school family.
We based our reflections on our knowledge from our Ash Wednesday service, during which Fr. Piotr taught us about the three themes throughout Lent: prayer, fasting & almsgiving.
Each reflection was carefully planned on the foundation of scripture which linked to each of our themes. Our Avilite's reflection on this was then shared with the children, along with a message for how others can live out God's message and handwritten prayers.
We are incredibly proud of our Avilites for their achievements this term. They have been model pupils when delivering their reflections and have taken the time to think carefully about the content.
Our Ash Wednesday Service - Wednesday 22nd February 2023
On Wednesday 22nd of February we celebrated Ash Wednesday as a school family in our hall.
Fr. Piotr and Fr. Wojciech came to school to distribute ashes and celebrate this special day with us. They taught us that Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and how Lent is a time for praying, fasting and almsgiving.
"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."
