Supporting the World
At St Rose's we believe in supporting our family, friends, local community and the world.  During each year we hold collections for a number of charities, ie. CAFOD, Cardinal Hume Centre, Save the Children, Samaritan's Purse, Mary's Meals, World Gifts, Catholic Children's Society.  After Harvest Mass our Year 2 children deliver food parcels to the elderly who live in a local sheltered housing complex.  The children then revisit during the run up to Christmas and give a short carol concert, using songs from that year's Christmas performances.



School's Liturgical Cycle
In each class there is an R.E. table, which is the focus for prayer and reflection and is linked to the Liturgical Cycle. Each class is also responsible for producing a display in the hall or around the school. The children work hard but enjoy producing truly wonderful displays.
