Praise at St Greg’s comes in many forms.
We regularly give praise to God through acts of worship, most notably during our Collective Worship.
We also give praise to our pupils each day. The achievements in each classroom by each pupil every day is a part of everything we do.
Praise in all its forms reminds us of the importance of the sharing of these successes and achievements. Praise is about saying “well done” for something that somebody has done well or something that we have really valued about a person. Praise can be loud and public, or it can be quiet.
As we come together for our Praise Assemblies it is in a public way. We like to shine a light on the achievements of our school community for all to share. These achievements come in many forms, some within the school, some from outside the school. We hope you will join us in praising our wonderful pupils as they journey through St Gregory’s.
Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
Learner of the half term
Learner of the half term is an opportunity for our school to recognise and praise those pupils who are displaying exceptional qualities in the classroom.
Learners of the half term: Autumn 2
Our Cross Country Team had a very slippery run at the local festival at the end of last term, making the route even more demanding than it is normally. They all tried really hard and everyone made it round the course, some of them twice! We were very proud of them all, but special mention must go to the Year 5 Boys’ team, who came second in their event, despite two of them still being in Year 4! Well done to all the children who took part.
Good attendance equals great learning. Studies show that attendance in school matters. Congratulations to those that have managed 100%.
Out of School Achievements
We like to praise all achievements and those from outside of school are no exception.
Congratulations to our children photographed for their achievements in Taekwon-Do, swimming and gymnastics. We are very proud of you.
Pupils that show excellent consistent writing skills including joined up writing are rewarded with their pen license. As the name suggests this involves progressing from solely using a pencil.
