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.


Y10 Duke of Edinburgh training has started!

On Tuesday they were taught about stoves and fire safety, meals and menu planning.

On Wednesday they learnt how to put up tents and about camping preparations.

One more training session to go before our students are ready for their expeditions…

Caitlyn performed extremely well at the very competitive ISA Midlands Cross Country Championships, and in finishing eighth in the Year 7/8 girls event was selected to represent the Midlands Team at the ISA National Cross Country Championships at Rugby School last Saturday.

Caitlyn came 21st out of 62 runners and was also part of the winning Midlands Regional Team in her age group.

A super performance. Well done, Caitlyn!
