2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of All Saints Catholic High School, Sheffield and the event is being marked in a number of different ways.
40 Years’ Timeline
Each of the 40 Vertical Tutor Groups have been allocated a year from the history of All Saints to research.
They may find information about historical events from that year; interview a teacher who worked at All Saints in that year or a parent/carer who studied at All Saints at that time. This will then form a timeline spanning the 40 years of the history of the school.
To celebrate the school’s 40th year there are plans to raise £40,000 for charity – that’s £1,000 for each year! We are in the process of setting up a Just Giving page which will allow us to take donations online – details will be available on the school website shortly. Please see the website for more details on how you can give!
Monday, 31 October to Friday, 4 November was the week the school arranged to celebrate its 40 years with House Masses, as it coincided with the feast of All Saints on 1 November. The theme throughout the week was of celebration although we did amend our celebration for the feast of All Souls. Primary head teachers, governors and past staff took up the invitation to join us on one of the days.
Summer Reunion Party
We plan to celebrate our 40 years with past staff and ex-students at our reunion party in the summer term. If you are an ex-student or member of staff of All Saints, we would love to hear from you. Do you have any memories of school that you would like to share? Any anecdotes or photographs of your time at school?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will collect your memories and photos for a display as part of our 40th year celebrations.
Bishop Ralph Opens New Library
In All Saints’ 40th year, the new library, the De La Salle Library, was officially opened by Bishop Ralph.
Students are able to borrow, reserve and return books at the push of a button or even just a thumb print.
There is a wide range of fiction to support every student having a reading book with them every day, every lesson. One aim of the school is to broaden students’ vocabulary and foster a love of reading for life.
