  • Maria Fidelis Peace Ambassadors

    Published 29/03/22

    Students from Years 8 and 10 started their training to become Peace Ambassadors.

    The school is working with the Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation on their leadership development programme to help students develop the skills needed to support other young people.

    The students will explore issues, such as identity & belonging, prejudice and discrimination, conflict resolution and social action.  They will get to experience situations in which their assumptions are exposed and constructively challenged.

    The Foundation was set up by the parents of Tim Parry who was 12 years old when he was killed by an IRA bomb that exploded in Warrington in 1993.  Johnathan Ball was also killed; he was 3.  Amongst other things, the Foundation provides education and trailing for young people to promote peace in their communities.

    12 Computer Science students from year 7, 9 and 10 took part in a School of Coding and Toyota Connected Europe coding challenge at the office of Toyota Connected in St Pancras. The Toyota Connected CEO, the Chief Engineer and Head Designer took time from their day to give a brief talk to students about their progression into their roles and the opportunities open to students interested in pursuing a career in computing and Technology.  

    Students worked with three ‘School of Coding’ trainers, impressing them with their team work, problem solving and creative thinking skills.  They were commended for  their dedication and creativity and one of the trainers said that our students ‘out smarted the trainer’!  

    Toyota Connected Europe were so impressed with Maria Fidelis students' passion, commitment and excellent conduct, they have offered to design another event just for us with a focus on ‘design, problem solving and organisational thinking’. The Computer Science department is very excited about this developing partnership and we aim to follow up the invitation in the summer term.

  • Founder's Day

    Published 18/11/21

    We began Founder’s Day this year by watching a film recorded by the FCJ sisters that was shown to all students. They then took part in a variety of activities, reflecting on COP26 and the issues it raised for our society and our planet.   Lessons finished early and everyone was given a specially cooked Founder’s Day Cookie.  We finished our day with the annual sponsored walk around Regent’s Park.  It was wonderful autumnal day and the park looked stunning.  Hopefully, we shall be able to raise much needed funds for The Passage (a London-based homeless charity) and for our school.

  • FCJ Week

    Published 16/11/21

    We were delighted to spend time in companionship with the FCJ sisters who worked with our young people reinforcing the Gospel messages through the FCJ values. Pupils and staff were reminded that every individual who is a member of our school is part of the wider FCJ community. We have shared values and with this a shared responsibility to be good stewards of the earth.

    The religious sisters spent some time sharing their vocation stories with our pupils. The FCJ values were revisited; the global work of the FCJ communities were highlighted; and links were made between our school values and their work for the care of our common home. The sisters explained why their presence at COP 26 was important: as people of faith, we should strive to do good work to care for the environment.

    Companionship is central to all the work that FCJ communities do. As companions, both children and staff were encouraged to walk alongside our neighbour, to accompany and be present with and for them as we build a sustainable world.

    “May God always be with you and direct all your deeds”
