A message from the incoming Principal

December 16th, 2012

St. Vincent’s is certainly a very special place. There is  a wonderful feeling which surrounds you in walking  through the doors. I would like to thank the children, the staff and Governors for the warm welcome I received during the interview process.

Having worked within primary, secondary, further and higher education and across public, private and voluntary sectors; I look forward to sharing my experience in support of our children.

Jubilee Tree

December 16th, 2012

We were excited to be one of over 50 schools and community groups in Merseyside planting a commemorative “Jubilee Tree”

The project was officially launched by Dame Lorna Muirhead, the Lord Lieutenant of Merseyside with a ceremony in Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on 24 November. Dame Lorna Muirhead said: “I am delighted that so many schools and community groups across Merseyside have chosen to honour the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in this way. In 60 years these trees will be a landmark to commemorate this special year.”

“The trees planted as part of this project will serve as a continuing reminder of Her Majesty’s lifelong service to this country.”

St Vincent’s apple tree was planted with the help of Helen Carty, High Sheriff of Liverpool, who came up with the Jubilee Trees concept. Helen said ‘this  is a great way to round off a memorable year for the country, and the trees will also help create The Mersey Forest – providing habitat for wildlife, helping to improve air quality, and creating greener, even more attractive school grounds for children to enjoy.’
