Each year the Church sets aside the month of November as a special month to remember those who have died and gone before us marked with the sign of faith. In the Chapel of the Infant Jesus we keep a Book of Remembrance, where the names of those whom we have been asked to pray for are recorded. These are our loved ones of any faith tradition. If you would like anyone remembered in our November prayers please send their names to Mr. Brendan Agnew, Head of Religious Studies. Or come down to the Chapel and write them into the Book yourself after the end of October.
Saint Maur once again played host school to Religious Studies teachers and those interested in the RS curriculum from faith-based schools in Kanto Plain. This was the fourth such meeting and the agenda centered around the issues of identity, liturgy and school spirituality. There was a brief break in the day for a walk to look at the Mere Mathilde bronze relief on the exterior wall of Futaba Auditorium Building. This opened the door to a very good exchange of ideas about how to use the local environs as a resource for teaching and learning. Hopefully, there will be another meeting in the spring with the aim of supporting each other and sharing good practice within this committed group of educators.
As a Catholic School, we offer a preparation program for our Catholic students who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. If any student is interested in finding out more about this, or advice and information on the other Sacraments - Baptism, Reconciliation (Confession) or First Communion - please approach Mr Agnew. We have Mass in the School Chapel at various times throughout the year. Information will be published on the school website.
British Football Academy is offering Saint Maur students a free trial lesson (usually ¥2,000~3,000) at their YC&AC location on any Friday this month. The class times have been adjusted to better suit the youngsters so they can make it on time and are offering this chance to try out the class (or any other class). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to apply for your FREE TRIAL.
This coming Monday September 17, Saint Maur will be hosting our annual Open House.
We cordially invite our parent community to visit the school on this day to meet the teachers, enjoy Niall De Burca’s storytelling presentation, hear about vital information regarding your child(ren)’s schooling experience this year, as well as new developments for next academic year, and obtain information on possible school supported trips during Summer 2019.
The Open House Schedule is available here, as well as information regarding who is teaching your child(ren). While everything in the document is important to review before Open House, please carefully read the “Class Visitation Guidelines and Important Information” as this will provide the framework to ensure that the planned events run smoothly for everyone. Also, please note that Montessori and Grade 1 bussing service is not available on this day.
Hope to see you Monday next week.
