Children’s Mental Health Week
We celebrated ‘Dress to Express Mental Health Week’ with this year’s theme ‘Let’s Connect’. Children explored the significance of making important connections with friends, family and people in the local community and how these connections can benefit our mental health and well-being.

Medway Athletics
Year 5 took part in the Medway Athletics event at Medway Park. The day ended on a high with the boys winning their final race of the day which was the 4 x 4 relay.  - ‘At the athletics, 19 members of my class competed in many races and events. Firstly, we did  a warm up and an obstacle course followed by relay races (either 1,2 or 3 laps) and javelin. Some of us were doing chest pushes and stand jumping. We also did some other obstacle courses which involved going into tunnels and side jumps. Then for the last four races we took part in even more relay races. We did very well coming 1st place twice and 2 nd place six times. We enjoyed all of the races and events and we had lots of fun and would like to do it again. Go St. Benedict’s!

O2 Young Voices
Year 6 children attended the Young Voices ‘biggest children’s choir’.  It was definitely a night to remember! - Young voices was an unforgettable experience that the St. Francis Class of 2022-23 were fortunate to experience!  Our sole purpose there was to ‘sing from our hearts’ and it was evidently clear that we smashed that task! Overwhelmingly, the majority of our stomachs and insides were excited with nerves, but we all had a giggle at the sight of Mr Hunter in ‘contemplation’ in rehearsal.  A favourite performance would most definitely be violinist Anna Phoebe and her melodic tunes.  We unreservedly recommend this experience to everyone!  Kome Year 6

Young voices was an unforgettable experience that the St. Francis Class of 2022-23 were fortunate to experience! Our sole purpose there was to ‘sing from our hearts’ and it was evidently clear that we smashed that task! Overwhelmingly, the majority of our stomachs and insides were excited with nerves, but we all had a giggle at the sight of Mr Hunter in ‘contemplation’ in rehearsal. A favourite performance would most definitely be violinist Anna Phoebe and her melodic tunes. We unreservedly recommend this experience to everyone! Kome Year 6

At the astonishingly large O2 Arena, we performed a huge concert with many other schools.  We all sang a variety of songs such as ‘We are family’ and watched some other fabulous performances like a magnificent street -dancing group (the Urban Strides) and a phenomenal violinist.  Our favourite event by far was the incredible, unearthly ‘Beatbox Collective’; the performers created dazzling beats with just their mouths! Pure talent! Over all, it was a phenomenal experience that we would absolutely love to do again!   Adam S. Year 6

Messy Church
Both parents/carers and pre-school children enjoyed our Messy Church session.  We had some incredible feedback from parents after the event.  Thank you to our Pupil Chaplains who organised the arts and crafts, read the Nativity story and wrote prayers to close our morning session.

Year 6 Forest School
Year 6 enjoyed a joint forest school party with Year 6 children from St. Andrew’s School, Rochester. Children had a huge choice of activities including creating a minibeast hotel, used tools to create a wooden festive cookie disc or explored all the changes in forest school since they last visited.

Wednesday 8th December 2021 - Guest Speaker Joanna Waller (Youth Vincentians Development Officer for Southwark Diocese)

KS2 enjoyed an assembly all about the work of Mini Vinnies led by our visiting speaker Joanna Waller (Youth Vincentians Development Officer for Southwark Diocese). We learnt how Mini Vinnies turn concern into action using the moto ‘see – think – do’. After the assembly, Joanna spent time with our new team of Mini Vinnies and the children shared ways they have already helped people in need and their plans for the rest of this year.
