Welcome one and all to the latest in our series of school blogs devoted to our residential school trips.
Once again, the children in Year 6 have the privilege of taking part in our pilgrimage to Assisi where we follow in the footsteps of St Francis. As we have for the last two years, we owe a debt of gratitude to the Trustees of the Shrine in Assisi for making our trip possible.
Miss McGinty and Miss Davis will be leading this year’s trip and we will be documenting our experiences in this blog with the aid of our school iPod Touches. The children will have regular opportunities to post photographs and typed accounts of what they have learned and the things they have enjoyed doing.
We would like to encourage you to post your own comments and questions to the blog during the week, and we will endeavour to share them with the children if the opportunity arises.
Please note that the children will only ever sign off using their first and last initials, and if you wish to direct your comment or question to a particular child we ask that you address them in the same way.
Also note that all comments to the blog must first be approved, and I may edit them very slightly if need be – mainly for reasons of Internet Safety. This will happen mainly in the evenings so I appreciate your patience!
We hope you enjoy our blog!
Mr. Ross, the rest of the staff team, and all of the children. ???

Good morning, already the 4th day hope you will enjoy the waterpark, looking forward to see you tomorrow Joy.
A big thank you to Miss MGinty, Miss Davis and all the teachers for looking after our children.
Everyone looks very happy, I wish you have a fabulous time and lots of Italian gelato.
We all miss you.
I am so glad that your friends and you are in Italy, that you’re having fun and you can visit these places so beautiful and rich in art and history. Did you see the Giotto frescoes in the basilica of Assisi?
The earthquake had badly damaged the church; I believe that on Youtube, when you return to London, you can still see the video when the church collapses.
After seeing it restored in this trip, the video will make you feel.
This blog is a great idea, thanks!
