Possible New School! Earlier this term we received notification from the Department for Education that we are on the Priority School Building Programme 2 for the latest round of new builds and significant refurbishments of schools that are deemed to be worthy of such investment.

From the outside, St. Theresa’s building looks fine but it is essentially rotting from the inside out with concrete cancer. The school, which was built in 1958, was expected to have a 40 year lifespan... that expired some time ago! So we are keeping our fingers crossed that we progress to the next stage of the process and get a modern, purpose built school that reflects
the 21st Century!

Football to represent sportSporting Sucess: We continue to have unbelievable sporting success at school. The footballers are doing brilliantly again and the U10s and U11s are still in all their cup competitions and winning their leagues. The U11s also won a very prestigious competition at LUFC and are now going to represent them at the next stage of the Kids FA Cup at Bolton. Fingers crossed... if we progress as far as we can in this tournament then we could end up at Wembley.

The Indoor Athletics Team has also performed miracles this year! They have won several heats including East Leeds Champions, East Area Champions and now they are City-wide Champions! There were over 150 schools that started out in this competition and St. Theresa’s has beaten allcomers. They will now go on to represent Leeds at the West Yorkshire finals on Thursday, 6 March. Happy days!

Congratulations! We pride ourselves on our outstanding status as a Catholic School and we are working hard to maintain this achievement. Lent (and Advent) are critical times in the Church’s year and they are important
times for our school too. The Advent preparation for Christmas this year was exemplary and we are working hard to help the children prepare well for Easter this year as well. There will be a series of Liturgies and Mystery Plays to mark the Easter Story and I hope some of you will join us.

Until next time, yours in Christ; John Hutchinson, Head
