VIRTUAL OPEN DAY

 

St. Dominic's Priory School has been leading the way in Staffordshire by delivering the full curriculum to children of all ages since Monday 24th March 2020, the first day of school closures due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

IT staff worked very hard during the final week of school to complete the roll out of Microsoft Teams and ensure that all staff and pupils were set up in the correct class and subject teams.

Staff and children undertook thorough training in school during the final week, so that they were ready to go live for Monday morning registration and get on with their full day as usual.  It has been an exciting time exploring and developing the functionality of the online learning platform, utilising live lessons, group chats for project work, setting assignments and handing them back in, as well as more fun activities such as maths bingo, quizzes and storytelling.

Staff are extremely proud to have been able to deliver the full daily curriculum to all St. Dominic's children, and have been overwhelmed by the children's committment and adaptability to the new way of learning.  Connecting daily with children has allowed teachers to ensure that their pupils' wellbeing has remained the top priority.

Here is what some of our parents have told us -

"We would like to thank you and all of the teachers for their hard work and commitment to the students in these unprecedented times!"

"The system has worked brilliantly in our household; in a time of great uncertainty St. Dominic’s has given us all a little bit of normality."

"I would like to say thank you and a massive well done for such a successful week of home learning. We have been so impressed with the support and hard work of all staff involved."

"I think that the staff have done a phenomenal job of continuing to offer a high standard of education; in fact, I think it has been exceptional."

"I think St. Dominic’s teaching & management staff are doing us all very proud as always.   The virtual offer including structure, content & ease of use you have all configured is way above that of any school I know; independent, academy or maintained. Well done & thank you."

"The staff have been phenomenal. Dedication, flexibility and initiative seems to be working well. You are all reinforcing your positions as running an excellent school and spirit of St. Dominic’s."

Catholics all over the world will be unable to attend church services this Easter weekend, and so St. Dominics Priory School's Year 9 pupils have created this dedication to Stations of the Cross, depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The object of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ. It has become one of the most popular devotions and the stations can be found in many Western Christian churches, including Anglican, Lutheran, Methodist, and Roman Catholic.

 

 A reflective poem written by our Catholic Life Prefect, Meg, in response to the world wide Coronavirus crisis

let me show you a world...
 
let me show you world where the hunger's unseen
it’s  not splashed over papers or on neon bright screens
let me show you a world where the people don't care
where the rich all go blind to what is and is not fair.
let me show you a world full of travel and news,
but where far-away videos are starving for views.
let me show you a world where we panic and flap,
only if the problem lands right on our lap.
let me show you a world where we waste and destroy,
'go green' they all say what a tactical ploy.
let me show you a world where everything's wrapped,
in plastics on plastic leaving animals trapped.
where the hungry are dying while so many can save,
if we all live as one and all try to be brave,
working together in a logical way,
we won't be unnerved by what media say.
let us look at statistics, and not follow the crowd,
don't believe all the headlines, and the dull painted cloud.
lets make our own minds up and decide what we read,
not be whipped into frenzy powered by greed.
when everything's over let me show you a world, where the people are caring and no ones unheard.
where we all live together, we all live as one,
and where solidarity and kindness overall, won.

 

 

Year 8 Geographers have worked in groups to plan an investigation into the microclimate of the school.  They selected four sites within the school grounds including the new rooftop classroom! They collected data such as; temperature, wind speed, wind direction and shade. They enjoyed using the anemometer, thermometer, compass and bubbles to collect the data.  The students will use this data to help them to decide where the best sites would be for certain outside items and will present their conclusions in a report.  Mrs Longmore is very impressed with the student’s approach to the task and looks forward to seeing the completed investigation reports.
