Saint Francis of Assisi

“For me, Francis of Assisi is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation.” Pope Francis

St Francis of Assisi is very important to our school. He knew St. Anthony and in fact, St. Anthony was a Franciscan.

He was a Catholic Friar who gave up a life of wealth to live a life of poverty.

We wanted to recognise the connection between these great saints by naming the home of Years 4, 5 and 6, The Francis Building which was officially opened in 2014 by Bishop John Sherrington.

On October 4th 2023, Year 2 had a special devoted to Saint Francis. The children dressed up as animals to represent his love of nature. They carried out some research which has been displayed in the Year 2 area and you can see below.
