Year Six - The Rainforest

Mr Janiszewski is the teacher in our Y6 class. Mrs Brown is the teaching assistant. Our class name is The Rainforest and we are the panthers.


Our Class Saint

St Josephine Bakhita. The Patron Saint of Sudan. Feast day is 8th February. 

Josephine had a happy and prosperous start to life but was kidnapped as a child by slave traders. After 12 years of being bought and sold, she ended up in Italy where she was placed in the custody of the Canossian Sisters of Venice. Whilst there she learnt about God - Josephine said she had always known about God but did not know who He was. Josephine felt called to follow Christ. When the slave owner returned, Josephine refused to leave and the case went to court. It was found that slavery had been outlawed in Sudan before Josephine was born and so she was declared free. She chose to remain with the Sisters often travelling and telling her story to others. 

St Josephine Bakhita, pray for us.
