Our St. Cuthbert's family celebrated with a thanksgiving mass as we said "goodbye" to our Year 6 children and to our long serving headteacher Mr Bruen.
We joined together as a family to thank God for all the wonderful memories our Y6 children have made and we asked Him to help and guide them on their new journey at high school.
We thanked God for all the wonderful work Mr Bruen has put in to St. Cuthbert's and for the many years of service he has offered. We will miss him greatly and we wish him a long, happy and peaceful retirement.
In the message from His Holiness Pope Francis, for the 104th World Day of Migrants and Refugees, we were asked to 'share the journey' by walking as a parish and school family, whilst thinking about those who suffer difficult journeys, seeking refuge.
We were very privileged to have two CAFOD visitors to share the journey with us. We spent two days thinking about the journey that refugees have to make. We heard stories of several refugees and shared in a reflection of how they must of felt. We also thought about our safe places and appreciated how lucky we are, we thank God for everything we have.
As we walked we 'totted up' the miles walked. The total number of miles walked by children and staff at St. Cuthbert's was added to the global family's 'share the journey' total. The hope is to walk enough miles to go around the world in solidarity for refugees.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the CAFOD visit and were very proud to have taken part in such a though provoking journey.

'Give it Up' April 2019
As a whole school we raised money for the CAFOD 'Give it Up' appeal. We were encouraged to give something up that we would miss, during our Lenten journey.
We filled our CAFOD boxes at home and raised a total of £481.66! Amazing!! The government will double this amount which will go to those in need.
Well done everyone!
Here are Y2S showing us how much money they raised but writing the word CAFOD across the playground! A whopping £61.50!
The Greatest Week!
