At St Cuthbert's we like to study people who have made a difference to the world in which we live in today. We look to people whose work in Science and Literature have made an impact in these areas. Each class learns about an author and scientist. We also look at those figures in history who have achieved remarkable things - Florence Nightingale, Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi for example. We study and learn from many different people, from different cultures and places across the world.
A saint is a person who has been recognised by the Catholic Church as being a particularly holy or good person on earth. They are the role-models of the church who have taken the teachings of Jesus Christ and lived them out in our world.
We learn in school about Saint Cuthbert, Saint Peter (a special friend of Jesus) and the Patron Saints of the United Kingdom Saint George, Saint Andrew, Saint David and Saint Patrick however we have also decided to have a Class Saint - we hope to learn about their lives and learn how they used their faith for good.
