For the first time, Our Lady’s Catholic Primary School Tile Cross, entered this year’s Annual Flower Festival at St Chad’s Cathedral, in June, and was overjoyed to be awarded with becoming one of the runners-up in the primary schools category.
As the theme for this year’s festival was the Saints of the Diocese – Our Lady’s school decided to enter a floral tribute to ‘Our Lady’, the patron of the parish and school.
Our Lady’s floral display was made with tissue paper flowers in turn made by the children of Year Two under the supervision of Class Teacher Clare Ryan and Teaching Assistant Lyz Duffy together with a little help from Foundation Governor Harold Hands.
The school is now keen to build upon this success and is already thinking about next year’s entry, Year 2 Class teacher Clare Ryan said ‘The children were delighted with the certificate they received, which now has pride of place on a photographic display made with photographs taken by a parishioner and Grandad of one of our pupils. We are grateful to Mr Hands for his help with our entry’.
