Next Sunday, 8th May is the 4th Sunday of Easter – or Good Shepherd Sunday – when we pray for vocations to all states of life and ministry in the Church, but especially focus on Prayer for Vocations to the Sacred Priesthood. In the Gospel Acclamation (Jn10:14) Jesus tells us “I am the good shepherd…I know my own sheep and my own know me. Alleluia!” In the Gospel (Jn10:27-30), we hear Jesus say: ‘The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me…” Let us pray, especially on Sunday for our dear Fr Michael and for him to be forever remembered in our thoughts.
As the warmer weather returns, the adults and children will take every opportunity to take their learning outdoors. Indeed, in Year 4, the children have been studying the many different areas we have outside to consider where to site a new adventure playground. Their persuasive writing accounts were extremely well-formed.
Next week, we look forward to our whole school visit to Winchester Science Center. The children in upper and lower school will all participate in different activities before all watching the space show in the planetarium. More news to follow next week from our adventures.
I hope you all enjoy a very relaxing and well-earned rest this weekend.
Matthew Robinson, Headteacher
