What you said, what we did

What You Said - What We Did.


Thank you for your responses, they really help us develop the provision for Mass and Collective Worship. 


You said after the first Mass - It would be nice to be greeted by members of the Prayer and Care group.

We did - Prayer and Care Group members now greet parents into the hall.

You said - I would like to hear religious music as we enter the hall.

We did - We make sure we now play religious music - sometimes this could just be piano based.

You said - You'd like to see more teacher and adult involvement.

We did - The class' teacher will now also take part in the celebration; this might be the introduction, a prayer or the offertory. 

You said- As a non- catholic the Mass was hard to follow

We did - We talked to Father Paul, he now briefly says what each part of the Mass is and we improved our power point.

You said - The children sang beautifully!

We did - Passed this praise onto the pupils.


The pupils said - 

We would like to sing more to sing more - we put the children's Eucharistic Prayer to music. 

We would like to see more pupils involved - we added a drama as a reflection to the word to include more pupils. 

We would like certificates given out like the old Congratulations Assembly  - we asked Father Paul to present the ' Heart which sees' and the class Congratulations Certificate. Mr della-Spina tells us the class attendance and House Points.
