Local Litter Pick during Lent 

Our Faith In Action! We recognise we are all responsible for caring for our common home; looking after each other and the world we live in. Our lunch time ramblers have been busy this Lent; giving up some of their time to ensure we have litter free school grounds, as well as litter picking around our local area such as Bowes Museum, St Mary's Catholic Church and also our elderly residents areas too. What a wonderful thing to give up some of your time to do boys and girls- thank you also Miss Callender and Mrs Dominick for organising this.

Big Lent Walk

As part of our Lenten Journey, St Mary's have pledged to take part in this Year's Big Lent Walk with Cafod. We are looking forward to getting Robin Bear out and about with us, with his walking boots and raincoat ready- and even packing a suitcase for him to join our Year 5 and 6 retreat! Please see our Facebook page for further information and pictures, as well as the link to support and donate if you would like to.


Some of the children in Owls class enjoyed spending time with our neighbours and friends in town to help with the annual Advent lunch. They enjoyed offering their time to help serve and clear up in the kitchen. and they said it was lovely to spend some time chatting with some of the parishioners too. Well done Owls.

Our Faith in Action group and their friends in Owls class went along to the Manor Residential Care home in Barnard Castle to sing for some of our elderly friends. Mrs Porter said that the children sang beautiful and the residents thoroughly enjoyed a sing- a- long too!

Thankyou Owls. We made a pledge to commit to serving our community and this is a wonderful example of us doing just that!
