(10.3.16) On Thursday 3rd March, the Year 6 children went on a Lenten retreat to the Marist Centre in Chorlton for a day of reflection on the theme of “Journeying in the footsteps of Jesus”. They worked in small groups to prepare posters, dramas and reflections on this theme. The word “Marist” is made up of the words “Mary” and “Christ” and the sisters who live at the centre are called to “live the Gospel in Mary’s way”. Take a look at our photographs to see what the children got up to on our retreat day.

We all enjoyed listening to such a talented group of musicians.
