‘This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it’.  Psalm 118.24 Alleluia! Alleluia!

Operation Teddy Bear took place on May Bank Holiday 2020! Staff and FiSH delivered a St. Helen’s Teddy to every child in the school. It was wonderful to see all of their beautiful faces on our deliveries. We’re missing our families, especially our children and wanted them all to know how much they mean to us and how we are always thinking of them during this period of Lockdown

“Thank you nursery for letting us bring home the prayer box. We have all had lots of fun and enjoyed the activities whilst practising our turn taking and sharing! We practised our prayers every night and our favourite activities were the balloons and bubbles. We had a lovely time sharing as a family”

Well done Teilo and  your assistant Oliver! You did a fantastic job selling hot chocolate to everyone for a very worthy cause, helping the homeless.

Teilo and his family used the proceeds to purchase gifts for fifteen homeless people that they met in Cardiff on Christmas Eve.

Dinas Powys Voluntary Concern were delighted to receive their hamper from Efail Isaf.

‘DPVC had a very generous Christmas gift from St. Helen’s School, Barry.  The children collected items that could be used at the Memory Café and Community Club.  The cherry liqueurs were particularly well received! Thank you’

Ewenny chose to support East 14 at Llandough Hospital for their Advent Hamper collection. Thank you to our families for your generous donations, the gentlemen and staff really appreciated your generosity. #servingothers #loveoneanotherasIhavelovedyou

Narberth delivered their Advent Box to Bellavista Nursing Home. Thank you to all the families for your generous gifts. The residents really did appreciate them.

A beautiful Advent collective worship in Dosbarth Glas. The children were so thoughtful and reflective.

Taking a moment to be silent with our daily meditation.

An example to us all! Well done TC for demonstrating the virtues of being Compassionate & Loving over the Christmas period, when raising money to buy gifts for the homeless.

As part of our come and See topic ‘Community’ we needed to create a job advert for a priest.  Canon Pat very kindly visited Lampeter and we asked him lots of questions about his life as a Parish Priest.  For example: What is the reason you became a priest? What is a typical day like for you? We all listened and have lots of ideas to help us create the advert.  Diolch Canon Pat!

Foundation Phase celebrated the Feast of the Presentation, commemorating the presentation of Jesus at the Temple, at our Candlemas service on Monday 3rd February 2020.

Canon Pat led our Mass with help from the children in Year 2. The children sang beautifully and participated reverently during our special Mass.

Children in Need 2019.

The Mission Ministry organised a variety of activities in order to fundraise for Children in Need. These included a ‘Do your own thing’ non uniform, best decorated cake competition, cake sale,  famous faces picture quiz and guess the number of sweets in a jar completion. We also joined in with Joe Wicks and his Big Morning Move. In the afternoon we were lucky enough to have a surprise visit from Pudsey himself!  Lots of fun was had by all! #ChildrenHelpingChildren

World Book Day – The Year of the Word, The God Who Speaks. In support of the Year of the Word we held our own World Book Day based around the most important book of all, The Bible and every class carried out activities based on a different Bible Story. Every child was encouraged to bring in their own Bibles from home and both KS2 and FPh were lucky enough to have Canon Pat come in to say a special blessing over our Bibles.

World Kindness Day Everyone was encouraged to think of ways in which we can show kindness towards others. Efail Isaf were lucky enough to have a surprise treat, a little act of kindness, in the form of delicious cupcakes brought in by TL. That little act of kindness certainly made us smile! #BeKind

Members of the Mission Ministry have helped to support the Royal British Legion by selling poppies and other items in their annual Poppy Appeal #WeWillRemember
