In P5 we have been learning about Fairtrade. We were very lucky to have Mrs Brown visit us to talk about Fairtrade, social justice and the work that goes on in our Parish. Inspired by this, we have created Fairtrade boards for the main entrance to the school. We created posters and pieces of work that illustrate and advertise Fairtrade Fortnight. Come in and have a look OR visit the Tuck Shop where fantastic Fairtrade products are available to buy! Go on take a step towards Fairtrade in 2013!

Well done to all countries and competitors,
by Team Italy in Primary Two.
Thanks to Fergus and his family, P2 were lucky enough to spend some time with Claire, a visiting student who is French.
While in P2 she taught us our numbers, colours and animals in French! Fergus was able to teach us how to introduce ourselves and his Mum helped us practise what we had learned. Oh, and let’s not forget little Ben, who spotted ‘le chat’straight away!
Claire then spent some time with Mrs McCallum and her P7 pupils. Primary 7 were able to introduce themselves and translate what Claire said about herself. We were all very impressed. Bravo to you all!
We would like to wish Claire all the very best in her future travels and studies.
The Primary Two Team.
What a truly special day!
We were so proud of you all during Mass. Beautiful acting, singing, reading and prayers in a wonderful atmosphere of love, reverence and warmth. Great to have so many visitors too! A day when School, Family and Parish came together to celebrate the Feast of our Patron Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows.
A HUGE well done to everyone who contributed to
‘A Cake for Our Cardinal’.
In P2, we decided to use the motto that the Cardinal chose when asked to be Archbishop in 1985: ‘Serve the Lord with Gladness’. A tree, with a branch for each class, symbolises how we grow together in God’s Love and share our talents. We invited pupils from nursery to P7 to come and work on the cake. Can you spot the symbol of your class? In the middle of the tree you will see our new ‘THIS IS our Faith’ book. We also included the Passionist symbol for St.Gabriel and our own school logo. The red ribbon was for our Cardinal, the purple for our school and black for the Passionists.
His Eminence was delighted with the cake and has decided to present it as a gift to The Missionaries of Charity in Edinburgh – Nuns who are part of Mother Teresa’s order.
Hope you enjoyed your cake too!
From all the staff in P2.
