Celebration of the Sacraments – Reminder

Just a reminder that the Mass of Enrolment will take place on Sunday 10th March in St. Cadoc’s Church and children should sit with their parents during the 10 o’clock Mass.  All children intending to receive the Sacraments this year should participate in this ceremony.

The Sacrament of First Reconciliation will be celebrated in St. Cadoc’s Church on Monday 11th March at 7pm. The children will sit together as a group and will receive individual Confession and absolution during the service.

St Ninian’s High School Lenten Service will take place at 4.00pm on Tuesday 12 March 2019 in the School.

The Service will be led by Fr Stephen Baillie and will include
the Rosary and some time for Lenten Meditation with the
Blessed Sacrament.

All pupils, staff, parents, families and friends of St Ninian’s
and the local Primary Schools are welcome.

Christmas Events

We really hope you have been enjoying all the Christmas events in school this past week.  This afternoon we have the Primary 7’s preforming Christmas songs for their families and tonight is the P3 Nativity Play at Newton Mearns Baptist Church.

Tomorrow our Advent collection is tins and dried foods for distribution by a local food bank. It’s also Christmas Jumper day so please wear a festive top to school.

Thank you so much for your donations of hats, gloves and scarves for the homeless.

P1 Applications January 2019

Changes to Primary 1 Applications

For children due to start school in August 2019, you must make your application via the new online system in January 2019. The exact dates this form will be available will be advised in due course.

Once you have made your application, you must report to your catchment school during the week 14th to 18th January, with the following documents:

  • Your child’s birth certificate
  • Your current Council Tax Statement
  • A recent mortgage statement or tenancy agreement
  • Child Benefit Statement, if you receive this, or a recent utility bill, bank statement (showing transactions in the last 3 months) or a driving licence
  • Your child’s Roman Catholic Baptismal certificate, if you have one

Placing request applications must also be made online.

Mass of Commitment/Enrolment

On Sunday 9th December, we will have our Enrolment Ceremony for the Sacrament of Confirmation during the 10 o’clock Mass. Children should sit with their parents and sponsor and are asked to wear school uniform (a white shirt and tie).

During Mass, Monsignor Monaghan will invite the children to process to the altar and present their petition in the form of a Letter for the Rite of Enrolment. In return, every child will be given a copy of the Baptismal Promises.

The children will write their Letter of Enrolment in school and it should be counter-signed by you. This letter is an essential part of the ceremony and it is important that your child is encouraged to take full responsibility for bringing it with them to the Mass. All children intending to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this year should participate in this ceremony.

If you have not already done so, please complete and return the Baptismal Record and photograph tear-off slip to your child’s class teacher as soon as possible.

If your child is not preparing for Reception of this Sacrament, they are very welcome to attend and receive a blessing.

Thank you once again for your support as we work together to prepare the children during this special time.
