St Peter’s Governor Retires

There can be no greater Christian duty than to serve your community, offering your time, efforts, thoughts and prayers to the benefit of others; serving with love and dedication.

It is with this thought in mind that we wish to publically express our heartfelt thanks to the dedicated service paid by Carol Hunt to the community of St. Peter's over the past many years, in her capacity as Foundation Governor of St. Peter's School.

Carol began her association with St. Peter's as a Parent Governor when her daughter Adele was a pupil here during the 1990’s. Over time she has served on many committees and most recently was chair of the Finance and Premises Committee, bringing her vast experience of working in the bank to our Governing Board. Her challenging questions have always ensured the school is steered in the right direction and finances have been kept in good order.

Carol has supported the school through many turbulent times, changes of head teacher, changes of staff and most recently the closure of St. Peter's Church and the subsequent significant building programme seeing the school transform in to a modern two form entry primary school. Pupil numbers have fluctuated over time and Carol has supported the school to its current position where it is educating approximately 400 pupils from the Farnworth community.

Carol’s retirement from The Governing Board of St. Peter's, marks an end to an era of dedication and service in an official capacity, however, we feel sure her heart will remain with us for many more years to come.

She has earned the right to now spend some quality time with her family, both here in Farnworth and further afield in Wales.

We wish Carol a very happy retirement from her official Governor responsibilities, but look forward to continuing to see her at school for our functions and events. She will always be made very welcome.

Farnworth Care Home welcomes St John’s Year Five Pupils - Tuesday 14th March 2017

On Tuesday 14th March, 11 year 5 pupils went to Farnworth Care Home, the purpose of our visit was to read and chat to the residents.

When we arrived we saw a lovely little white dog who also lived at the care home. The care assistants showed us around and put us in groups of two, ready to go and read to the elderly. We soon realised that some of the adults didn’t want to be read to they just wanted to have a little chat and some company. It was enjoyable being able to read and chat to people in the local community, who might not otherwise see many children. Personally, I really enjoyed visiting the care home and finding out about the residents there. We talked about lots of different topics such as school, birthdays, football and what they used to like doing when they were younger. Hopefully we can build our relationship with Farnworth Care Home and maybe invite them into school.

All Saints Primary School were contacted this Spring by a lady called Margaret who had ended up with the war memorials from the old All Saints church.  She had been doing a local history research project and no longer needed them.  Bolton museum didn’t want them either and so suggested that she contacted us at the school.  We were delighted and said we’d be honoured to have them.  They are now displayed in our entrance hall and Margaret also gave us a file of information on the people listed.  Having this important piece of our local history, and another link to our church, makes us feel very blessed.  If any of the congregation recognise any of the names and would like to come to the school and have a look at the memorials and/ or the information file then you’d be very welcome.  Just contact Katie Hague at the school on 01204 333083.
