ABC Assembly

1st-6th class will be gathering in the hall for a special Anti-bullying Month assembly  on Thursday. We are a telling school. We try to make friends with everyone in school and at home.

Click play below to practise your song for Assembly!



You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
When the road looks rough ahead
And you’re miles and miles
From your nice warm bed
Just remember what your old pal said
Boy, you’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got a friend in me

You’ve got troubles, well I’ve got ’em too

There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you
We stick together and we see it through
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Some other folks might be
A little bit smarter than I am
Bigger and stronger too
But none of them will ever love you the way I do
It’s me and you

And as the years go by
Our friendship will never die
You’re gonna see
It’s our destiny
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me
You’ve got a friend in me

Middle Assembly

Assembly for 1st-3rd Class takes place next Friday. We will be celebrating the arrival of summer by singing Let’s Go Fly A Kite from Mary Poppins!



With tuppence for paper and strings

You can have your own set of wings

With your feet on the ground

You’re a bird in flight

With your fist holding tight

To the string of your kite

Oh, oh, oh!

Let’s go fly a kite

Up to the highest height!

Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring

Up through the atmosphere

Up where the air is clear

Oh, let’s go fly a kite!

Middle Assembly – May the Month of Mary

Children from 1st-3rd Class will gather for our next Assembly on Friday. Prizes will be given to the winners of our Attendance awards and we will hear news from each class.

As May is the Month of Mary, we will  sing the song ‘As I Kneel Before You / Ave Maria’ during our Assembly.


As I kneel before you,

As I bow my head in prayer,

Take this day, make it yours

and fill me with your love.


Ave Maria,

Gratia plena,

Dominus tecum,

Benedicta tu.

All I have I give you,

Every dream and wish are yours,

Mother of Christ,

Mother of mine, present them to my Lord.

Ave Maria,

Gratia plena,

Dominus tecum,

Benedicta tu.

Amazing Triangles by Ms. Russell’s First Class Rm. 9

We investigated pyramids and cubes. We discovered that pyramids are stronger structures than cubes. They are more sturdy and can hold up weight. We then looked at famous buildings that have triangles and pyramids. Watch out for these amazing triangles in the environment!!
