Patron of the Cathedral School

Today the Cathedral School took delivery of a beautiful new statue of St Peter, patron of the parish (and therefore of the school). It is a fine piece of work, with a clarity that will help the children recognise our patron. Apart from the very youngest in the school, the children know that St Peter was a fisherman; they will also recognise the keys, seen on the school logo and in so many places within the Cathedral church.

The statue has been placed on a prominent thoroughfare in the middle of the school, right outside the headteacher's office. Miss Goddard was keen for the statue to be in place before the forthcoming open days (tomorrow and Tuesday 2nd October). St Peter's statue now stands proudly by the school mission statement: "We are growing in faith, love and knowledge, taking God's light into the world."
