Primary 4 were thrilled to share their comic strips with Mrs Hesp in the School House. They have worked hard to produce complex sentences and created some amazing comics!
During March, we held a competition to design a poster on ‘Internet Safety’.
There were many entries for this competition and it was very difficult to choose the winners.
Each of the winning posters included a strong and clear message about how to be safe when using the internet and each poster was presented very well.
In March, some of our students entered the National Intermediate Mathematical Challenge.
The aim of the challenge is to stimulate mathematical problem-solving.
Well done to all of the students who took part, we are very proud to announce that four St Dominic’s students have achieved a certificate.
This is a huge achievement as these students are the highest performers in the Challenge; the top-scoring 40% of participants are awarded bronze, silver and gold certificates in the ratio 3:2:1.
Well done to all of our St Dominic’s students for achieving many House Points this half term. It was a pleasure to hand out so many badges in our House Celebration Assembly.
Some of our Pr 3 and Pr 4 boys and girls took part in a Rugby Mega Fest at Eccleshall Rugby Club last week. The Kids First Mega Fest format is promoted by the English Rugby Football Union.
The event was run by the Stafford & Stone Sports Partnership, supported by the coaches at Eccleshall Rugby Club and the partnership young leaders.
There were many different games and challenges to participate in, including rugby rounders, rob the nest, ball touch, statues, end ball and breakout tag.
Today was our last shared lunch of the Lenten season. Throughout this time students have given generously and eaten simply as a way of both standing in solidarity with the poor of the world and focusing on their own spiritual welfare as opposed to their own physical needs.
Well done everyone; as usual, carried out in true Dominican spirit!
We have raised enough money to buy fishing nets, chickens and even a goat for our brothers and sisters in developing countries overseas.
On Thursday, Year 10 students visited the Manchester Jewish Museum.
There, they consolidated their knowledge and understanding of Jewish faith and practice through a series of games, activities and even a round of Family Fortunes!
Students also learnt some new and fascinating facts about the life of the Haredi Jews that live in the nearby Leicester Road. They travelled there afterwards and, having walked up and down the High Street, called into Brackman’s Bakery to sample some kosher fayre.
Primary 4 had a real treat this morning when Mrs Harrison came to make Easter themed chocolate crispy cakes with them! They had a great time and enjoyed spending time with the headteacher.
