On Friday October 26th , one of the longest serving members of the St. Corban's school community retired. Mary has worked as a traffic warden outside our school for the past 30 years, helping our students cross the busy road safely.
To bid farewell, all the classes gathered in the yard and Mary was presented with some gifts. Some of the students were also involved in designing the "Happy Retirement" banner. We'll all miss Mary and we wish her the best!

Treat yourself to sweet heaven
Ride on the best night eve
I did yes I robbed his candy
King at eating sweets.
Over the moon theres candy heaven!
Right or wrong I love candy.
Talking trees steal candy
Robots roam the twon.
Eletric Fizzes down your back
All the sweets you ever dreamed of
Tonight there in your bag

This year's Halloween at St. Corban's is turning out to be very good indeed. From decorations to spooky stories the school looks wonderful.
I had a very enjoyable time looking at all the students dressed up and having fun. The decorations put a smile on everyone's face.
Best wishes to all and have a happy Halloween!

Below are the details of the arrangements for this year's sacraments.
As UNICEF is one of our selected charities we are holding a non-uniform day this Friday 12th October. The boys may wear their regular clothes to school on Friday and are asked to bring a donation for UNICEF on that day.
Thank you for your continued support and generosity.
What happens when you mix a base with an acid?
1 papier maché volcano
Washing up liquid (to make it bubbly)
Small amount of warm water
First, in a jar you mix the baking soda and water. Then you add the food colouring and the washing up liquid. You pour the mixture into the volcano. Add the vinegar and stand back!
The baking soda (base) and the vinegar (acid) reacted with each other and caused it to rise and overflow over the side of the volcano. We got to have a second try and added more of everything except water and the effect was much better!
