Verse of the day...
Each day this week, there are verses from the Easter story, some time to reflect on 1 question, and then a short prayer.Just before Jesus is betrayed in Mark 14: 32-42 we read, ‘They went to a place called Gethsemane, and Jesus said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” He took Peter, James and John along with him, and he began to be deeply distressed and troubled. “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death,” he said to them. “Stay here and keep watch.” Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that, if possible, the hour might pass from him. “Abba, Father,” he said, “everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will.” Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Simon,” he said to Peter, “are you asleep? Couldn’t you keep watch for one hour? Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Once more he went away and prayed the same thing. When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him. Returning the third time, he said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Enough! The hour has come. Look, the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”’
-Spend some time and think what this tells us about Jesus.
Prayer for the Day
Let us pray,
Father God,Thank you for sending Jesus and for his example of standing firm in the face of suffering. Give us your strength to keep going when things get tough, give us your wisdom to know how we can help others and your heart for all those in greater need.
Taking care of my wellbeing:
How do I access Microsoft 365?
How busy is moodle this week?
Moodle has proved to be very resilient after a massive surge in usage. Thank you for your patience if there has been a short outage - remember GCSEPod, Seneca Learning, Sam Learning, Maths Watch, Manga High, Kerboodle ... are also waiting for you to learn from.

Year 7Good morning all! I trust you had a restful weekend. Last week I suggested writing a diary or journal of your experiences during this time, as these events will surely go down in history. Some of you might be doing this already, but if you aren't it's not too late to start one now! We're doing one as a family and got a few days behind last week so caught up at the weekend. All the very best with your schoolwork this week too. I spoke with a few of you last week and I was thrilled to hear some of the ways you are helping and encouraging each other with your work too. Keep it up! God bless, Mr Neville
p.s. Happy birthday to Reuben!
