Students Celebrate Mass at Neighbouring School

A group of students from across the school visited St Vincent's School to celebrate their school's feast day.

Our students took part in the feast day Mass at the school, in honour of St Vincent de Paul, who died in the 17th century.

St Vincent's, on Yew Tree Lane, is for students who are blind or partially-sighted.

"What an amazing school. Unique and doing such an important job for their students."
- Daniel, Year 9

"Mass was really good. The students read with confidence and one girl sang a solo that was just so beautiful."
- Matthew, Year 12

"We were made to feel really welcome and it was good to meet so many people from such a special place."
- Tom, Year 8

Bible Quote

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?

MRS. JOHNSTONE: What? What?

MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."
