The Moran Trophy

'Catholic schools are established by the Church for Catholic children and young people, who, through baptism, have a right to an education in the Catholic faith. Catholic schools in their various forms are built on the foundations laid by previous generations of parents and clergy. We have inhertited this rich tradition of Catholic schools from them and are committed to handing it on to future generations.'

 

Our Catholic Schools - Their Identity and Purpose

 

The Moran Trophy is awarded termly to a child in the school that has made outstanding progress.

 

The trophy is named after the Moran family.

 

Tommy Moran became an 'observer' on the Governing Body in 2012. He then went onto become a Foundation Governor. He was part of the first Governing Body. He worked tirelessly in those early days and helped to build the foundations of this wonderful school. In his time on the Governing Body, he was part of the panel that appointed Mrs Rutherford, our first ever Deputy Headteacher and Mr Doherty as Headteacher.

 

Abigail, his daughter, joined with the first intake of children in September 2012. One of our founder children, the reason for our being. Beth then joined in 2014 and Meghan followed in 2015 – a ‘Holy Family’ family!

Sarah helped set up the initial PSA in Oct 2012 as Vice Chair. Sadly, this ceased in 2013 but as fundraising still needed to be done it got done through Sarah’s determination and considerable hard work. She was then asked to restart the Friends of Holy Family Association again a year later and was Chair until Easter 2017.
 

This trophy is to be a termly reminder of the commitment made by the Moran family - a commitment to make Holy Family School an outstanding Catholic school, a jewel within the community.

 

They Moran family have moved on and they have handed the baton onto all of us - children, parents, staff and governors.

 

 

 

 

Elliot - Summer Term 2021 Winner 

 

 

Elliot is a child who has the most inspiring work ethic. He has always been known throughout the school as a hardworking boy with impeccable manners, but this last term he has excelled himself. His progress across the curriculum, in particular writing has been exceptional this term and I always look forward to opening up his Big Write book to see what flair and mature creativity he has included; he is truly a gifted writer.

However, Elliot’s reasons for achieving such progress is not just his natural talent, but hugely reflected in his exceptional attitude to learning. No matter what the lesson is he can be relied upon to be industrious, striving to complete his work to the highest standard with immense attention to detail. This eagerness and determination inspires others within the class and the way he asks questions to achieve further understanding ensures that others can learn more from his reflections. It is often hard to get him to put his book down at the end of the lesson as he wants to do more!

Elliot’s accomplishments have not just been limited to the classroom.  In the past few months he has flourished in many areas of school life: further drive at rugby, pushing himself to perform well in the Year 6 production and letting everyone see his considerate and supportive nature at PGL, when he demonstrated and coached his peers in climbing.

As Elliot, prepares to leave Year 6, the younger pupils at Holy Family are very lucky to have him as a positive role model, continually living out our mission statement. I anticipate such wonderful things for him at secondary school and I look forward to hearing all about his achievements. We are all very proud of you Elliot.
