The whole school gathered for Mass to wish the leavers in Year Six farewell and to send them on to their next school with love and fond memories of their time at St Mary's, Marnhull.

Father Budge told them to be brave and to stand up for what is right and good and that goodness and kindness mattered more than anything.

May Procession 2018

Once again the parishioners were invited to work in school with the children, the focus being the Stations of the Cross. The children progressed around the various workstations each of which had activities that presented a different aspect of Christ’s journey to the cross. The parishioners were impressed by both the knowledge and empathy that the children demonstrated during the day. We would like to thank all the staff for their kindness and help and especially to Mrs Myatt for all her work both planning and organising the day and to the children.

Parents and Parishioners were treated to a delightful Nativity play at the end of term, with songs and humour and the story of Christmas enacted with the whole school taking part, complete with bossy Roman soldiers and twinkly stars.  Well done all of you and enjoy a well earned rest, both staff and pupils!  HAPPY CHRISTMAS!
