Holy Island 2019

Last week Year 6 spent a great three days on Holy Island. There was lots of walking, talking, sharing, reflecting and praying from 6.00am until late. Education comes in many forms and we never stop learning. It was all about spending quality time with our friends as we prepare to leave Corpus Christi.

Time to move on now – our new schools are waiting for us!
