ST. PATRICK SCHOOL WOULD LIKE YOUR HELP. Can you spare a morning or afternoon each week to join the school Reading Volunteers? We are looking to expand our team of volunteers to spend time exploring and reading books, as many children would benefit from more time reading with an adult. Interested in sharing your love of reading? Request forms can be found at the back of the church. Please return to the school by 22nd September 2017. Thanking you in advance.
