    Year 6 Leavers’ Mass @ Clifton Cathedral
    Jun 13 @ 11:00 am – 12:30 pm

    This year’s theme is ‘Live Simply’.

    What does “living simply” mean to you school community? How does your school show that you are reflecting on the teachings of Laudato Si’ and Catholic Social Teaching in your parish, local community and our global family? Please produce something no bigger than A4 which represents your school living simply.

    This is the annual celebration for all year 6 pupils moving on to the next phase of their education. It is possibly the only time many of our children will visit the Cathedral or meet Bishop Declan, something that those who attend really treasure

    Schools must submit total numbers attending the mass by Friday, 17th May 2024.
