Last week members of St Gregory's School and St Mary's School, along with the local school committee, representatives from NORES and the Diocese joined Mrs Kirstie Yuen to celebrate her Induction Mass as the new Executive Headteacher of St Gregory's and St Mary's Schools.
They welcomed Mrs Yuen's family and staff from her former school St Mary's Catholic Primary School in Aston-Le-Walls, as Monsignor Kevin McGinnell led the Mass. The Mass was concelebrated by Deacon Michael Fleming from the local Parish and Fr James Evans from Aston-Le-Walls.
The Mass inspired all present, moved by the vibrant band of St Gregory's Miss Jackson and Miss Forrestall, as well as by emotive prayers entrusting Mrs Yuen to provide the best possible learning environment so that each pupil can develop knowledge and skills for life as a Christian. Monsignor McGinnell asked the parents, pupils and community present to reiterate their support to Mrs Yuen, with the help of God.
Pupils from St Gregory's and St Mary's presented their respective school mission statements to Mrs Yuen during the Mass, while NORES presented a commemorative candle and staff from both schools presented gifts.
Mrs Yuen would like to thank everyone who helped to make the evening such a special occasion.
