The Little Flower Concert

The Little Flower Concert

On Wednesday 2nd October, children, pupils and staff from our school joined parishioners from both St. Teresa’s Church and St. Aidan’s Church to celebrate the feast of St. Teresa in the first annual Little Flower Concert.

It was a fantastic celebration in which there was an array of talents on display, including singing from our school choir, St. Teresa’s Church choir and parishioners from St. Aidan’s parish, as well as a musical performance from two pupils from St. Mary’s High School. Our Year 5 children performed a moving liturgical dance to ‘You Alone can Rescue’ and Ann (a parishioner) performed a beautiful Indian liturgical dance.

A fantastic night was had by all!
