On Tuesday 8 December, the College celebrated Feast Day, marking the day back in 1854 that the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (the founders of the College) were established. During period 3 the school community came together virtually to commemorate the anniversary with a special service of thanksgiving. The day is also an important day for all Roman Catholics, as it is the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, in honour of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Father Alan Whelan MSC led the school community in reflecting on the work of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, to empower, educate and inspire. He explained how ‘Caring’, the Chaplaincy theme for this school year, was central to their ethos and that Jules Chevalier, the founder of the MSCs, believed that without a sense of caring there can be no community.

During the service pupils wrote on red hearts examples of how they care and those hearts have been hung on a Christmas tree for all to see.

In morning Tutor Time, the school held a Prize Giving Ceremony to celebrate the achievements of pupils over the course of the 2019/20 academic year. Prize winners joined the Headmaster, Ed Hester, in the Chapel for the presentation of the awards, while their peers watched from classrooms across the school and enjoyed a legendary Princethorpe cookie. It was a wonderful opportunity to celebrate their success.

The full list of Prize Winners can be found in the Prize Giving Programme Feast Day Prize Giving Booklet and the link to the recorded event here.
