Archdiocese of Glasgow Mass for Teachers & Support Staff

School staff and Senior pupils enjoyed a special Mass to celebrate the vocation of Catholic teachers on Thursday 31st August in St Andrew’s Cathedral. This was a wonderful opportunity to pray for colleagues, pupils and their families as Catholic schools approach the Centenary Year of the 1918 Education Act Scotland when Catholic schools were brought into the public provision of education.

St. Maurice’s Food for Thought

Further to the successful grant of £3000 we received two years ago from the Food For Thought funding to establish the St. Maurice’s garden, we have again been successful in securing another £3000 for chickens and honey bees. The money will allow us to build a chicken coup and run, purchase 6 chickens, bee hives and honey bees.  The project will commence immediately with the pupils from Horticulture and the S4 Prince’s Trust group clearing and preparing the quadrant area outside the old oratory for the building of the chicken pen.

We would also like to invite volunteer pupils, staff and members of the local community to support our project. Please speak to Nicola Lames (PE) or Jim Lawson (PE) for further information.
