Whilst the United Kingdom took part in the General Election this year, St Patrick's found our own way of prompting the ideals of democracy and pupil voice by holding our own school-wide election!
Year 5 children formed into 4 parties, each of which designed a campaign based on the question 'How can we make the school a better place?' (subsidised with a small pot of money!). Each part presented their manifestos to the school, designed posters and spread their messages during break and lunch times, even adding information for parents in the newsletter.
The winning team was the ODC who have pledged to fix up and improve the Outdoor Classroom. They met with Miss McLoughlin, and now in Year 6 are following up their plans!

Isle of Wight 2015: Day One/Two
The annual residential trip to the Isle of Wight fr Year 6 is a right of passage for children in St Patrick's. Whilst here they learn how to overcome challenges and work as a team in a range of exciting activities, from abseiling to wall climbing to quad biking and more! See further information by looking at the Year 6 class page.
Learning to Learn 2015: Making Children Sparkle with Dr Tom Robson
.The Gem Project has long been a focus for children at St Patrick's to 'learn how to learn'. (You can find more information on the Learning tab to the left).
It was a project designed by Dr Tom Robson, who we were very lucky to have come and work with classes last year. Parents were invited to come and watch him discuss learning with their children during the day, and then were invited to a workshop after school.
Sainsbury's Superstar Cooks 2015
Throughout the year, talented TA Mrs Lynch worked with children in Year 5/6 to design and make healthy food. Teams of children entered their recipes into Sainsbury's Superstar Cooks competition, which one lucky team were fortunate enough to win!
This led them to the national finals held in London and presented by Diversity's Ashley Banjo, where they had to cook their dish for some very hungry judges! The team managed to win and won £10,000 to improve the school's cooking facilities and a special dance class for 30 children with Ashley Banjo himself!
