On Friday morning 29th September our Year 6 prefects led a welcome assembly for our new reception class pupils and their parents. The prefects had written reflections and created posters to describe their journey through Holy Redeemer School. Reception class introduced themselves to the school community and shared the work they have been doing in RE lessons about people who love and care for them. Deacon Pat came to the assembly and presented each pupil with a welcome certificate. We sang our school song and prayed that God would bless our new pupils and parents as they join our school community.

Everyone is important even if you’re big or you’re small,

Holy Redeemer school is the best
You will stand out from the rest
You will have lots of fun
But remember everybody is N0.1
Maths, English, R.E
Topic, Art, P.E
If you work hard you will earn an reward
And the rest will applaud
In tests you will get high marks
And in shows you will get main parts
You with love this school from top to bottom
And your experience here will never be forgotten

Throughout these seven years, Like a lightning bolt,
You’ll write, So we hope you’ll enjoy

You’ll learn about God, But just remember,
More and more, God is always near!
