They also won the ‘Best Company Report’ award for the third time in the overall competition.

Paten Plate Winner
At the end of last term Tatum Collier from 9W won a Paten Plate design competition. The Paten Plate was kindly donated by Peter Jones (one of our parents). As part of her Art homework, Tatum was set the task of creating a design that celebrated the history of the school and the opening of the Old Chapel. Tatum’s beautiful design was chosen by Mrs Williams, Mrs Fagan and Mr Jones as the winner and her prize was a trip to Hatton Gardens, the jewellery district of London, to see the plate being engraved. Tatum met the engraver, and watched as he finished the engraving by hand. As well as this, she was able to choose a Tresor Paris bracelet to take home. Congratulations to Tatum and thank you to Peter Jones for his assistance with the competition!

YEAR 11 STUDENTS HOST A BREAKFAST MEETING WITH BARRY HEARN
Last week the Year 11 M.A.T.C.H students met for the final time with Barry Hearn. He was most impressed by the progress that they have made and was really interested to hear about their experience at Romford Market. The girls showed him their recent addition to the Design With Dignity product range, pictures of the Old Chapel in the 1920’s. He was delighted with their product idea and believed that they would really capture the potential market. The competition comes to a close this week and the winners will be announced on the 10th May at Leyton Orient Football Club. Please keep the Design With Dignity team in your prayers for the final stages of this competition.

Message from CAFOD!!!
You will be aware through the media over the last two years that the crisis in Syria is having a devastating effect on the lives of millions of people, and that the situation is worsening.
We are already supporting our Church partners in Syria, helping them to provide food, clothes and relief supplies to those most in need. The extensive community networks of the Church mean that it is uniquely placed to act: our partners are able to provide life-saving aid in some of the worst hit and most inaccessible areas of Syria. We hope to scale up this work, as well as to support refugees who are streaming into countries like Lebanon and Turkey.
According the United Nations, 2.5 million people in Syria are in urgent need of food aid, while thousands are fleeing into neighbouring countries every day. The scale of the crisis is overwhelming.
Given the gravity of the situation and the urgent need to respond, the UK’s Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC), of which CAFOD is a member, has decided to launch an emergency appeal on March 20th. Therefore, we wanted to let you know that CAFOD is scaling up its own Syria Crisis Appeal at the same time.
We greatly appreciate your continued support and ask you to keep those affected by this crisis in your prayers.

Pope Francis born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 is the 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church. A native of Buenos Ares, Argentina, he was ordained as a priest in 1969. He was elected Pope on 13 March 2013, following his predecessor Pope Benedict XVI's resignation on 28 February. His choice of the name "Francis" marked the first time in papal history that this name had been used, and along with Pope John Paul 1 is one of only two times since Pope Lando's brief 913 reign that a serving pope held a name unused by a predecessor. He is both the first Jesuit priest and the first native of the Americas to be elected Pope. He is also the first non-European pope since the 8th century.

The standard of cookery was, yet again, very high from all entrants but it was decided that the overall winner of the competition was Thanet House. Congratulations!
