St. Gregory's School choir
On Tuesday evening, at St. Barnabas Church, 31 members of the St. Gregory's choir joined forces with six other local primary schools for the ESMA Spring Concert. This made a total choir of around 220 children! Eleven songs were sung together on the theme of travel e.g. by wind, rocket or even one's imagination. Each school also sang their own song. The St. Gregory's choir performed a rendition of 'Count on Me' beautifully. They all made me so proud of them! Thank you, choir members, for the long-term commitment you made to this concert and to parents for supporting and encouraging their children to learn the songs. It was really an amazing and worthwhile experience; one we will always remember

Our hockey team finished 3rd in the borough and rugby-tag team won the finals and will be representing Ealing in the London Youth Games on 28th March.
St Gregory’s hosted another brilliant World Book Day this year. The pupils made a huge effort to dress up as characters from their favourite books and share their stories too. The day kicked off with ‘The Big Read In’ where classes got cosy with a book in their classrooms, playground and even corridors! All of the pupils loved the chance to just stop, drop and read. After this, pupils had a reading swap. Classes across the school joined forces and each pupil read a story (that they had written themselves) to a peer in another year group. This was so successful and the pupils loved sharing their stories, looking at each others’ costumes and exploring new characters and worlds. Finally, we hosted the Big Reading Assembly where the whole school celebrated together and performed in a costume catwalk. St Gregory’s School has never seen so many creative costumes! Thank you to all the teachers, parents and pupils who took time to make costumes, pick out books, read stories and volunteer their time for this great event.
