Once again we came together to celebrate another successful year. The children gained prizes, certificates and trophies for a variety of achievements including: attendance, sports, merit and progress. Well done to everyone for all your hard work - what a fantastic year!
Children's University Graduation
On the 12th June 2018, twenty-five pupils from Year 2 and eighteen pupils from Year 6 graduated from the 'Children's University'.
'Children's University' is a charity that works in partnership with schools to develop a love of learning in children through participation in extra-curricular activities. We are very proud of the variety of extra-curricular activities we have to offer at St Robert Bellarmine as we believe they provide opportunity for children to gain new skills whilst building confidence and resilience.
The graduation ceremony was held at Edge Hill University in Ormskirk, and parents came along to show their support. The awards ranged from a 'Bronze Award' to a 'Bronze Degree' based on how many credits the children had accumulated from the various clubs they take part in within school. Well done to all involved!
The children with the highest attendance were rewarded with a trip to the beach. Children from Reception to Year 6 participated in a range of fun activities including football, zumba, crabbing and playing in the park. What a fantastic day for all involved!
Year 4 First Holy Communion
Nursery had a fantastic time celebrating everything they have achieved this year at their own Graduation! Everyone who came to watch was so proud of the children and enjoyed celebrating with a tea party.
The whole school celebrated their hard work throughout the Autumn Term at the Christmas Fair and Christmas disco!

We recently celebrated Healthy and Active Week which is organised to promote healthy eating and drinking, being active and to encourage children to take part in more P.E and sport. We felt it was a fantastic opportunity to develop links with the local sport groups as the children were delighted to engage in various sports such as running, athletics, scootering, gymnastics and multi sports. We also had educated talks from local nurses who explained the importance of a healthy lifestlye.
Summer 2016 saw children, staff and parents at St Robert Bellarmine celebrate another successful fun run in glorious sunshine. The event, which this year was set up to raise money for the Oliver King Trust, was enjoyed by parents, children and staff who all participated in the run and the dance performances from each year group. Many, many thanks to Mrs Hardman who choreographed the dance routines and to the volunteers who helped set up the event.
Once again we welcomed another year of Sports Day were our exuberant children showcased their abilities by showing resilience, teamwork and at times putting others before themselves. They really shone and represented the school's values. Congratulations St Andrew's for winning the event and many thanks to volunteers for helping to set up and participate in the event.
