Daily Update - 31st March

Today, the last day of March, is also the feast of St Benjamin, a 5th century martyr from Persia. He endured countless hardships during his lifetime and never wavered in his belief in God. Maybe this is a good model for us to follow in our time of trouble.


The staff have all loved seeing your photos and pictures and have been responding to them. Keep them coming in at support@st-patricks.southampton.sch.uk and keep an eye on the class pages of the website for messages from teachers.

Have a lovely start to April but don't let the children play too many Aprils' fools tricks on you (or at least let us know what they've done!)
