Devotions. NUALA THOMPSON

School ‘Diversity’: As a Catholic community, one of the most
important lessons we will ever teach is about diversity. Teaching about the
Importance of Celebrating Different Cultures and Diversity will help grow
children of Saint Ambrose to have the best start in life . Did you know that
being culturally aware can have a significant impact on success? “Diverse
classrooms promote creativity, high level thinking, and collaboration.” All
classrooms represent different backgrounds, cultures, ethnicity, language,
religion, and physical ability. Being diverse is defined as all the ways we are
alike and different. For this reason every half term we will be celebrating a
different culture with members of our school and parish communities. On Friday
9th July from 2pm - 5pm at the Parish Centre we will be celebrating the
Filipino culture with members of our school community and parish. Please keep
the date free and if you would like to be involved in organising the event
please contact E. Brocklesby via email email@example.com
St Ambrose’s School ‘Smarties’ Challenge: During May pupils are being encouraged to
help raise funds for the school by giving each child a tube of ‘Smarties’
sweets. Once the sweets are eaten, each child/household fills the tube with
coins (1 pence, 5 pence, 20 pence or £1) and returns the change-filled tube,
named and sealed, to the School by May
27th. The class that raises the most money will receive a prize.
Please pray for:
Trina Cole, Pat O' Doherty, Peter Strangward, Peter Hesketh, Jessie Tolley,
Annie Holcroft, Veronica Pugh, Sheila Mikulicz, Edward Sage, Jackie Sands, John
& Audrey Choyce, Shirley Keogh, Joyce Berry, Clare Conway, Fr. Graham
