Building the Kingdom

Posted: 31st March 2022

Nursery to Upper II enjoy meeting our guests.

We hosted visitors on Friday 25th March when Deputy Heads from around the country came to St Augustine’s Priory as part of the National School of Formation Barnabas Magdalene Programme.  The programme is designed to promote leadership and our guests spent the day observing our work around Building the Kingdom.

From the Nursery to Upper II our pupils spent the day in learning about bread and its importance in symbolism in the life of the Church.  They also learnt how to make bread  – and flour, butter and a lot of kneading went into our bakers’ work!



We received excellent comments from our visitors, including ‘..the collaboration and learning which everyone saw was so enjoyable for the girls in your care and academically challenging’ and commenting on what several said, ‘two (visitors) were going to replicate one of your ideas each, while the others were effusive about what they experienced on the day’.

Thank you to all who made this day possible, it was a wonderful experience and we do look forward to our visitors returning!
