Although we are a Catholic school we welcome members of all faiths and none into our community.
We all remember our schooldays, but have you ever wondered what it’s like to be at school today? Here are just a few of the many things that happened last term.
In December, local author Nickhola- Susanne came and shared some of her stories from her book the Wonder. She brought lots of exciting props and the children were encouraged to actively participate in creating thunderstorm noises, spraying water for a rainstorm, banging drums etc to create the atmosphere. After a gripping storytelling session about how a butterfly got its wings one child from Reception class was overheard to say, "that's the best story ever!"
During October, we had Grandparent Week activities across the school. It was an enormous success and we had lots of positive comments from those who came along. We were mindful that some children may not have had someone but can assure you all the grandparents that visited shared time amongst all the children.
September saw Shona Richards, 400m hurdler, British junior record holder and twice world junior silver medallist visit the school. Shona held an assembly and spoke about her sporting life. She also talked about growth mindsets and was impressed with the children's knowledge of what it takes to achieve this! Also that month, John Cumming came in to do a talk about Rottingdean and its history. The children were really engaged and loved being able to learn about the different people who lived in Rottingdean and the many events that took place here.
