ST MARGARET CLITHEROW CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL
I was delighted to welcome many parents to Mrs Ryan’s class assembly this morning. The children shared with us the joy of mini-beasts and how they are part of God’s creation and the part they play in our beautiful world. It was a very interesting and informative assembly. Thank you to Mrs Ryan and her class for their hard work.
The children enjoyed a Fire Safety Talk from the local fire service on Tuesday where they learned about the dangers of fire in and around the home and what to do and how to stay safe in the event of a fire.
