    • Newman News - October 2014

      date posted: Wednesday 22 Oct 2014
      We have a new style of Newman News. Up to now this has been available either on the website or as a paper copy. To communicate more effectively with parents, carers and the many friends of Cardinal Newman Catholic School we have now moved to a format that can be easily emailed far and wide! We would appreciate your feedback (including ideas for improvement) and if you do have this to offer please contact c.allen@cncs.co.uk. We hope to publish two editions of Newman News each half term.
      As you will see in this first and bumper issue this has been a busy and a highly successful half term in school. We have only been able to highlight some of the tremendous achievements of our students but I want to take the opportunity to say that we are proud of all of our students and grateful for the continual support of their parents and families.

These exciting workshops are suitable for students who can play guitar, bass, drums, keyboard or singers. They will take place on Wednesdays and will involve a one-hour masterclass where students will learn technique and practice their individual part within the band before coming together for a one-hour band session. There will be four specialist teachers coaching the masterclasses and the bands. Each two-hour workshop will cost £14. If students wish to take part they can pick up a flyer from the Music Office.
    • The Feast of Blessed John Henry Newman

      In 2010 Pope Benedict beatified Cardinal John Henry Newman during a visit to Britain. He declared October 9th as his Feast Day.

      John Henry Newman had been a prominent member of the Church of England. During the 1840s he became increasingly disillusioned. Embracing the Catholic Church as the ‘One Fold of Christ’ Newman was received at Littlemore by Blessed Dominic Barberi on 9th October 1845, hence his Feast Day.

      Today in school we will be remembering Cardinal Newman. He made a huge contribution to life in Britain during the 19th - he was identified as one of the ‘Eminent Victorians’ - and to the development of the Catholic Church as it emerged from nearly 300 years of repression. Newman’s ideas on education are still highly valid today and help to guide our own work as a school. We refer to his famous meditation often:
