We would like to thank those of you who took the time to respond to the proposal to close the residential provision at St Dominic’s and provide feedback.  Please see the News page for the final Consultation Report.

Harvest Festival

We were delighted to welcome Reverend David Jenkins to St Dominic’s to deliver our Harvest Assembly. We talked about fruit and vegetables, showing a bowl of apples that started as seeds, and the harvest, thanking God for the farmers and all those involved in providing the food we eat and those less fortunate who do not have enough to feed their families.

Food bank items were kindly donated and the pupils bought them up during assembly. Reverend David gifted an apple tree to the school and some of the pupils were brilliant in helping to plant it this week. We can now all watch the tree grow and hopefully in a few years will be able to harvest our own apples!
