Year 7 Ethos Day

Year 7 had a fabulous (annual) Ethos Day exploring the Ursuline values of respect, kindness, generosity, perseverance, gratitude and mercy. In groups they learned more about our patrons St Angela and St Ursula, they then presented their research through the choice of visual displays and dramas. Students also created acrostic prayers  to St Angela or Ursula thanking them for their work and asking for their help to love our the school ethos
