One was for producing an appropriate contents list for a time capsule and the winner was Matthew Reynolds from Year 10.  Isabella Murray in Year 8, won the 60th Anniversary logo competition.  The logo will be used throughout the academic year to highlight the diamond anniversary.  The tree were planted by staff and clients at Midstream a training centre in West Lancashire which caters  for people with learning difficulties and other special needs.

Moreover, as a school community we have a number of other celebration events planned through the year.  There is a Diamond Jubilee celebration evening on 15th July being organised by the Friends of St Bede’s.   

Also, the whole school will be celebrating Mass in Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral on the morning of the 20th of July 2017.  Parents, past pupils, former staff and anyone with a connection to the school are invited to attend the Mass in the Cathedral.  Furthermore, if any one has any photographs or newspaper cuttings of pupils or staff of St Bede’s over the past 60 years could you ask them to send them to the following email address. 60thanniversaryphotos@sbchs.co.uk  Please ensure that any photographs or cuttings sent by email have the
