Headteacher's Blog Post - Thursday 29th February 2024

This term, the school has had the simply excellent news that the proposal for a brand-new school building has been approved by the Local Authority! This announcement is the culmination of extensive work on the part of the LA, the Diocese and Welsh Government. All of us in the school community are tremendously excited by the prospect of the opportunities, facilities and resources that the new building will offer and we know that we will all be counting down the days until the opening of the new building. We look forward to sharing more detailed information with you as soon as it is available.


We are now, of course, in the season of Lent, this having commenced during our half-term break. Our pupils are aware that this is a time of fasting, almsgiving (giving to those who are in less fortunate circumstances) and prayer, and our Faith Council and Charity Team have been working hard to lead by example and to provide opportunities for these activities.


This month has also seen two of our Sixth Form pupils visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau, having been given the opportunity to take part in the Holocaust Educational Trust’s ‘Lessons from Auschwitz’ programme. This involved online learning and webinars, along with a one-day trip to Poland to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau. Nia Bibi and Mereesa Jinu, were proud to represent Bishop Vaughan on the trip where they learned more about the experiences of the Jewish people during World War II. Following a ‘Next Steps’ project, where our pupils will share what they have learned with our school and wider community, Nia and Mereesa will become Holocaust Education Ambassadors.


Our committed Junior Legion of Mary continues to meet weekly after school in the Chapel. The group are always full of excellent ideas and they are currently planning their second annual Easter Fair, which will take place in the Sacred Heart Parish after the Easter Vigil Mass and after Mass at 9.30am on Easter Sunday. All are welcome! As always, we commend the pupils on the energy, imagination and dedication they demonstrate as members of this group, and we give thanks to Canon Jason, the Sisters of the Sacred Heart and Mrs Anne Lear for their continued support of the Junior Legion and our pupils. Everyone is welcome to join the group which meets from 3.15-4.15pm every Tuesday in the school Chapel.


The remainder of this term, though it is a short one, promises to be very busy indeed! We look forward to our Eisteddfod tomorrow - Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus, pawb!
