Class Saints

In every class, children learn about their special saint… and they have lots of fun celebrating their Saint’s Feast Day.

St Mary is the Patron Saint of our school. She is a very special lady as she was the mother of Jesus.

Year 4 – St Francis of Assisi

Saint Francis of Assisi was a Catholic friar who gave up a life of wealth to live a life of poverty. He established the Franciscan Order of friars and the women’s Order of the Poor Ladies. Francis was born in Assisi, Italy in 1182. He grew up leading a privileged life as the son of a wealthy cloth merchant.

Year 5 – St Josephine Bakhita

The children in Year 5 have enjoyed completing a range of activities of Josephine Bakhita. Josephine Margaret Bakhita, F.D.C.C. (ca. 1869 – 8 February 1947), was a Sudanese-Italian Canossian religious sister who lived in Italy for 45 years, after having been a slave in Sudan. In 2000 she was declared a saint by the Roman Catholic Church.

Year 2 – Saint Patrick

Saint Patrick is Year 2’s class saint. He was chosen because the children in Year 2 learn about the Holy Trinity – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. St Patrick used the shamrock as a symbol to try to help people understand this mystery. The children in Year 2 made triangles. This was to show that there is one God made up of three parts.
