Why we have our Newsletter....

Dear students and families

I am often asked by visitors why we at Bonus Pastor Catholic College publish a weekly edition of our Pastorale when most schools only send out half termly newsletters. The answer is because we have so much going on each week and so many great stories to celebrate!

We are all missing the hustle and bustle of daily school life and I wanted to write to you under these unique circumstances to share some of the examples of inspiring work I have seen from our students in recent weeks.  During the lockdown, students are still sending through outstanding work which shows that our spirit and ethos remain as strong as ever during these difficult times.

In the latest edition of Pastorale you will see how students are still managing to achieve milestones on their road to achieving the Bonus Pastor Charter. How some students are gaining valuable transferable skills through other tasks such as cooking and supplementary courses. I am also sharing with you some brilliant art pieces across all year groups and some wonderful poetry as well as a playground art tribute to Captain Tom who has touched the nation with his fundraising campaign.

Please stay safe and well during these difficult times and continue to keep your spirits high.

God bless

Mr Ronan

Principal
