Archbishop Antonio Mennini Apostolic Nuncio Visit

Thursday 11th December 2014

A pleasure, an honour - it is hard to find an appropriate phrase to sum up our morning. We were very fortunate, blessed and humbled to receive a visit from His Excellency Archbishop Antonio Mennini, Apostolic Nuncio in Great Britain. You never quite know what to expect from such a unique visitor and can feel slightly anxious to ensure that everything is ‘just right’. From the moment His Excellency entered our school it was clear that the preparations were not really necessary as it was the heart of our school that he wanted to visit. He wanted to spend time with the smiles and the faith of our school, something that you cannot prepare but know is present by the feel that you know a Catholic school can create and cherish.

His Excellency did say to the children that ‘School days are the best days of your life, treasure them’. Who could disagree? It did however cause me to pause and reflect upon how one morning and one man could create such an impression and I know a memory that will be lasting. He reminded me that as a Catholic school it is our duty to ensure that these days are the best days of our children’s lives. I know I will hold this morning as a true example of how we make every day a ‘best day’.

His Excellency arrived as a visitor but left as a friend.
