The Saints were not Superhuman. They were people who loved God in their hearts, and who shared this joy with others. ‘
The School has chosen to name our classes with the names of Saints whom we feel represent the diverse culture of our School and which have special meaning for each class. The Saints Day for each class will be celebrated and children can wear their own clothes on that day.
We commissioned an artist to work with the children to create pictures of each Saint to look over their classes – they have produced some fantastic work.
