Our school is dedicated to St. Teresa of Lisieux. Therese is one of the best-loved saints in the Church and was known as "The Little Flower."
Therese Martin was born in Alencon, in France on January 2nd 1873. She entered the Carmelite Monastery at Lisieux aged 15. She died nine years later on September 30th 1897 when she was just 24.
Our motto, "Laborare est Orare" means "Work is Prayer." In this way, Therese teaches us that our everyday activities can bring us closer to Our Lord.
She showed us how to follow her "Little Way," by doing the ordinary, everyday things, extraordinarily well. And so, no matter how small and insignificant we may feel, we all have something positive to contribute to our school family. Our pupils and staff are encouraged to keep this mantra at the heart of each and every day.
During Lent, Pope Francis asks us to " warm hearts." Let us try to be warm-hearted towards others and by our love, warm the hearts of others.
For our school community, making the journey through life is about building relationships: with God and with one another. In order to sustain us on this journey and indeed to respond to the needs of the members of our community and the wider world, we place great importance on sharing assemblies, liturgies and services together. Whilst our faith underpins all that happens within the school, there are regular, planned opportunities for us to come together to worship. From time to time, additional services are needed in response to local, national or international events.
Classes take turns in attending Thursday morning mass and adoration with the parish.
