The highlight of this week has got to be Bishop Declan’s visit on Thursday. Students in our Liturgical Music Group had all their hard work and effort recognised by Bishop Declan who presented them with certificates of achievement and the students delighted myself and Bishop Declan with a performance of ‘Down to the River to Pray’ and ‘Lord of all Hopefulness’.


We then went to The Well where Bishop Declan met a mixture of Year 9 students and Year 12 and 13 students studying philosophy and ethics and sociology. A lively and informative question and answer session took place and I would like to thank Bishop Declan for putting himself on the spot and answering the questions our students asked with such honesty, integrity and deep knowledge. This was such an affirming experience for everyone who was lucky enough to take part.
