At St Augustine of Canterbury Catholic Primary School, our liturgical celebrations follow the Church’s liturgical calendar.
In addition to the Liturgies and Masses listed below, we also mark the following events.
October – Month of Mary: During October children are given the opportunity to come to the Chapel at lunch time to pray the rosary together.
Remembrance Service: On Remembrance Day we hold a service to mark those who have served and died during past wars and current conflicts.
Nativity: EYFS and Years 1 & 2 all take part in separate Nativity plays, where children, staff and parents are reminded of the true meaning of Christmas.
Key Stage 2 Carol Service: Key Stage 2 work collaboratively to re-tell the Christmas story through scripture readings, songs and prayers. It provides a time of reflection, in a very busy season, on the essence of what we celebrate at Christmas.
Lent trail: During Lent, the Chaplaincy Team prepare a Lent trail for the whole school. Children journey from station to station reflecting on the meaning of Lent and things they can do to become closer to God.
Easter Presentation: Years 3, 4 and 5 work together to prepare an Easter presentation which takes place in St Augustine’s Church, highlighting the key events of Holy Week and beyond.
Year 6 Leavers’ Mass: Our Year 6 Leavers join other Year 6s from around the Clifton Diocese to celebrate Mass to mark the end of their primary school journey.
Year 6 children also celebrate mass at the end of their time at St Augustine's. Every child is presented with a Bible for their onward journey in life.
