Event - Mardi Gras

25 February 2020

To help lead us in to Lent and help children understand the change of mood and purpose, the whole school celebrated a special day themed around Mardi Gras.

Staff and Children from the Chaplaincy team came dressed in the three colours of Mardi Gras - green, gold and purple which represent faith, power and justice. School was specially decorated in these colours too.

Throughout the day, children had the chance to buy pancakes and over £250 was raised for St Chad's Sanctuary.

Our fabulous kitchen team planned a special celebration lunch and as carnival music played in the dinner hall, there was a real party atmosphere. Children really enjoyed this special feast before their fast!
