Nestled amongst the terraces behind the Cathedral, our primary school has been relatively tranquil since the end of July. Today it returns to business as usual, as children return following the summer break. It is greatly encouraging that the number of pupils at the school continues to rise; from today the number of classes has been increased to seven to accommodate the increased roll. Alongside this rise is a firm commitment to the school's Catholic ethos and ever-stronger links with the parish. Let us keep the school in our prayers throughout the year ahead, that God may continue to bless all involved.
