Mrs Hirst and Miss Drinkhill are the teachers in our Y1 class. Mrs Phillips is the teaching assistant with Mrs Christlo on Mondays. Our class name is The Hive and we are the bees.
Our Class Saint
St Therese of Lisieux. Patron Saint of the Missions. Feast day is 1st October.
Therese was known for being selfish, attention-seeking and spoiled. Therese wished to become a nun from the age of 3. When Therese was 13, she had what she called her 'Christmas Conversion.' In an instant, she stopped being selfish, became determined to help others and radiated joy. At the age of 15, Therese entered the monastery and achieved her dream. Therese is most known for her 'Little Way' - she spoke of doing small things with great love. Therese carried a string of beads and used them to count her good deeds. She believed it is not the greatness of what we do that matters, but the love with which we do them.
St Therese, pray for us.
