Class Saints

As a reminder that we are called to be saints and live a life of holiness, each class is named after one of two our class saints: St. Alban or St. John Henry Newman.

The children begin each academic year by learning about their class saint's life, why they are a good role model and how, through their example, we might become closer to Christ ourselves.

Each academic year, children alternate between the two. This means, that by the end of their time at Holy Rood School, they come to know about the lives and work of both saints and can leave our school taking guidance from how our class saints lived their lives to make Christ known to all.

St. Newman Feast Day 2022

On Monday 10th October, we held a special assembly all about one of our class saints, Saint Newman. His feast day was on Sunday 9th October so the very next day we took the opportunity to mark this special occasion by inviting all children who are in a Newman class to wear their own clothes, including something Red (the symbolic colour of St. Newman), to school on Monday 10th October. We then learnt more about his life and what we can learn from his example.
