Moving on… The Class of 2017

Moving on… The Class of 2017

Last week we said goodbye to a very special group of children, who we have shared many great memories with over the past 7 years. We wish them all the very best, as they go on their different paths. Here are the two videos – one from the start of the production on Monday night and one, played after the Leaver’s Mass on Friday. We wish all of our St Matthew’s families a very peaceful and relaxing summer break and we look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 5th September.
