Ripon Cathedral School Update
Week ending Friday 15th March 2019
Enjoying Comic Relief Day
A change of scene for Early Years
In next week's Update we aim to publish photos of the changes and further thanks as the build would not have kept to deadline without the input of contractors and project managers.
Today, Year Six enjoyed a visit from Nabilah Karim from the Leeds Grand Mosque. She talked to the class about Islam beliefs on the afterlife to consolidate their RE topic. She was extremely impressed with the class's "Deep questioning and extremely insightful and thoughtful discussions." A huge thank you to Nabilah.
Linking to our 'Justice' value this half term, our Year 6 ambassadors led a school worship on Wednesday about the unfairness of homelessness. The school ambassadors have contacted some local charities and are currently looking into how as a school we can support their aims. Watch this space for more information.

Our second Easter tradition, an egg hunt on the school field, will also take place as soon as school finishes for the term, at 2pm on Friday 12th April. Huge thanks to the parents who have found us sponsors for these events, we promise the details of the local companies who are supporting us will be published!
