Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Primary School

'Living and sharing the message of Christ, in peace we go forward together.'

Our School

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School is a place where the Spirit of Christ lives through us and in us. 

Our Catholic Life Blog illustrates many of the wonderful events which take place in our school on a daily basis in classrooms, assemblies and in the wider community.

In addition, here are some more of the many other ways in which the Catholic Life of our school is celebrated every year.

Advent Prayer Trail

The children in Year 6 lead a beautiful Advent Prayer Trial for the rest of the school. Through the different stations, they tell the story of Christmas in a reverent and emotional way. 

Later in Advent, the whole school and Parish community come together to celebrate the birth of Jesus in our KS2 Advent service. Children from all junior classes lead the readings and the singing is spectacular.

Lent Prayer Trail

Like Advent Children in Year 5 lead a moving Easter Reflection. Children travel around the different station. Each station is in a a very moving and spiritual experience . The children reflect on the events of  Holy Week leading up to the joyful story of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Trafford Prayer Trail

Recently we have joined together with all the Catholic schools in Trafford to participate in a prayer trail. Each school visits another and takes part in a Liturgical Prayer session. This takes part throughout Lent with our Year 3 children who are on their Sacramental journey. We conclude the trail celebrating mass together at one of wonderful churches. 

Crowning of Our Lady's Statue

May is traditionally the month when we especially pray to and honour Our Lady and so on the first day of the month, we hold a special service in the hall to celebrate together as a school family.

The service is led by children in Year 3 and 6 who share  prayers about Mary.

Each child is asked to bring a flower which they carry in procession and as the children sing hymns, our school statue of Our Lady is crowned with flowers by two of our Year 3 children who will shortly be making their First Communion. We thank Mary for all she does for us and ask her to continue to guide and bless us.

Fundraising during Lent

The children, staff and wider school community respond wonderfully to our fundraising activities, especially during the seasons of Advent and Lent.

During Lent, children choose different ways to fundraise. This has ranged from cake sales to danceathons.

Harvest Collection

During our Harvest Assembly, we are reminded of all the good things that God gives us and how important it is to share with others who are not so fortunate. Thank you to everyone who responded to our appeal for tins and food items for the Hope Centre in Partington
