Welcome to Bishop Walsh Catholic School part of the St. John Paul II Multi-Academy

Principal’s Message
19th September 2017 (9/19/2017)

Our new cross on our new roof!

You will have hopefully noticed the white cross on the new roof. (see picture at the top of this page )  The cross was given to our school by our previous school chaplain Fr. Van Tien.  It is wrought iron and sat on top of St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Boldmere for nearly 60 years,

Now it stands on top of our school reminding us all that Jesus sacrificed himself on the cross and that by sacrificing ourselves we can show love for each other.   In this way we can make a difference by sacrificing our own desires to do good for others.

Let us pray today that more of us can stand up for our Christian beliefs, be as Jesus said, ‘the salt of the earth’ in the next few minutes, hours, days and weeks and during this academic year 2017-2018.
