Message from our Chaplain Mairie
Welcome back to a new school year and, for some, a new school. Everyone is very welcome, and it is lovely to have movement around school that is a bit more what we are used to. For this year’s focus we are returning to our school motto, ‘In Omnibus Labora’, which we understand as ‘Always do your best’. We wear this motto on our uniform, and it is on all our books as well as being seen on the website and around the school. 
‘Always do your best’ isn’t just about academic effort. It is about being your best self; taking care of yourself mentally, emotionally and physically. It means making the best choices, not the easy choice. It means  relating to other people in the best way you can and doing your best for them. St Paul wrote this to his community, two thousand years ago, ‘Do your best. We achieve when we never give up’. (Galatians 6:9). In this new year, with the help of God, let us all take our school motto to heart. 
Sacrament of Confirmation 
Some of our parishes are starting preparation for Confirmation later in the year. The preparation is organised in the parish and is for young people who have made their Holy Communion and are in Year 8 or above. If you have not yet signed up for a programme there is time for a few more weeks. Please speak to your parish priest or check the parish website for more details. 
Covid Testing
We have now finished testing in school. All students with consent have received two lateral flow tests in school, thank you to everyone for their participation. Students have been provided with a home test kit, we encourage all students to continue testing twice a week for the remainder of September, until we await further government guidance.

Instrumental lessons will be starting over the next 2 weeks.
