mary birthday 001

On 8 September the St Benedict learners celebrated Mary’s birthday, which also happened to be the founding day for the CPS Sisters who started the school.  The children gathered around the grotto, where there is a statue of Mary and they were blessed with a wonderful explanation of how significant Mary is in our lives from a Mom of the school.  The grade three girls then performed a dance to honour Mary’s birthday and the celebration concluded with all the children and staff singing Happy Birthday and receiving a yummy piece of chocolate cake.
