Our first International Day of food, art, music, sport and dance celebrating the many nationalities and cultures in Our Lady of the Missions will take place on Sunday 10th September.

What would you like to do on the day to represent yours?

 Can you or anyone in your family cook, dance, play, sing, perform, run a craft/art activity or do anything else to share your nationality or culture?

Please either return the slip sent from school or email us on or with the following info asap:

are you likely to come?
what do you want to do?
what is your nationality?
name / child’s name / class / mobile phone/ email address

 Many thanks!



All parents / carers are welcome to the first of our regular coffee and cake events in school – to get to know each other better and share your thoughts on issues affecting the school.  We are delighted to welcome our new and acting Headteachers  Mrs Dillon-Ruddy and Mrs McGrotty to the first get-together which will be:

  • Thursday 22 June
  • 9 am to 10.15 in the Junior Department dining area
  • Topic – OLM is 60 in 2019….what is our vision? How can we as parents be involved?

This will be a very informal, friendly chat to hear what you as parents / carers think. It will also be a good chance to meet parents you may not have spoken to before and hear different points of view. As they say, it’s good to talk!

To gauge numbers /catering, please email  with your name and your child’s name but you can also turn up on the day if you can’t commit just now. Please note, we’ll experiment with different times and days over time to open sessions up.  We hope to see as many of you as possible!

Our Lady of the Missions Parent Council


BEST WISHES to all in our school community and beyond who are observing the holy month of Ramadan, which started on 27 May.

We know it is a hugely important time for our Muslim families as they come together with family and friends in fasting, reflection, prayer and thinking of those less fortunate – extra charity is given in this month.

For those of us who are not familiar with Ramadan, Muslims believe that during Ramadan, the Qu’ran, the holy book of Islam, was revealed to mankind through the Prophet Muhammad. Many therefore devote extra time to the study of the Quran during this time. The end of Ramadan brings the festival Eid-ul-Fitr which will fall around 26 June.

Ramadan Mubarak to you all!
