Diamond celebrations for Coventry school – with ice-cream too!


A Coventry school has held a day of celebrations to mark its 60th anniversary.


Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School, part of the Romero Catholic Academy, hosted a special event to mark the milestone.


Birmingham’s Archbishop Bernard Longley celebrated Mass for children, staff and governors.


And he blessed the school’s new sensory garden which was created in memory of learning mentor Carole Flynn, who died last year.


Tours of the school were held and everyone was treated to an ice cream.


Corpus Christi Principal, Kevin Shakespeare, said: “We had a fantastic time celebrating the school’s 60th anniversary.


“It was excellent to welcome the Archbishop - it’s the first time he’s visited Corpus Christi so it was nice that he not only led a Mass, but had the opportunity to tour the school to see some of our outstanding facilities.


“The children really enjoyed the day and the brilliant weather meant they were able to enjoy their ice creams in the sunshine.


“We will be continuing our 60th anniversary celebrations into next year, culminating in a series of events in June when we hope Covid restrictions allow us to welcome the whole school community.”
