Message from the Head of School

There have been some amazingly colourful outfits in Holy Cross today as children came in to school dressed in their own clothes for the Children in Need Appeal. Look out for how much we have raised later in the Newsletter.

You will have received an email this week with a document entitled ’The Vision, Values and Principles of Plymouth CAST attached. Please take the time to read through this document. You can also locate the document on the Holy Cross School website under the ‘Information’ section and Plymouth CAST.

Foundation Stage held a Teddy Bear’s Picnic this week, when they all had a wonderful time with their favourite teddy bears. However, when the children in class went off to have their lunch , the teddies decided to hold a bit of a party of their own! Have a lovely weekend. Mrs Potterton

Liturgy in School

The theme for our prayer and worship next week is:


Dear Jesus, I know that I cannot see you now; but that one day I will. Until that day, I promise to follow all that you teach me.
