Friends of Romero’s Christmas Fair 2021 – 19th November – 6 pm to 9 pm
Between Monday 20th September and Friday 1st October, pending the right weather conditions we are aiming to send a helium-filled balloon into near space, 30km above the surface of the Earth. Equipped with a payload of cameras, sensors, and a raspberry pi computer, which we are going to beam data and images back down to earth mid-flight.
On the day of launch our ‘Green Box Flight Team’ will be running a Live Stream via Youtube (above) starting ~15 minutes before launch
Follow us on social media and our website for more information and to keep up to date with our progress and for potential launch dates

As we come to the end of the Spring term, I would like to thank everyone for their hard work and support during this time.
In many ways it has been a term of two halves, with our first half term taking place during a national lockdown before being able to welcome our students back.
I know I speak for our whole school community in saying it has been an absolute pleasure to have our students back where they belong.

We are having some major electrical work done this Easter, so we have had to shut down all of our IT systems in preparation for this.
This means that there will be Edulink access for parents, students or staff over the Easter Bank Holiday and into the first week of the half term.
We are hoping the work will be completed by Friday 9th April, so access to all IT systems can be restored ready for Monday 12th April.
As soon as works have finished and normal service is resumed, all parents, students and staff will be informed.
We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Have a great Easter.
Students at St Oscar Romero’s Catholic school have a great day planned on Thursday 11th February called the Pillars of Possibility – Where ‘Anything is Possible’.
Throughout the day students will be involved in Pillar workshops helping them to build their skills for the future. Zoom Seminars, fun activities, quizzes, challenges and much more.
The Pillars of Possibility is a personal development program that helps young people to build core practical and human skills for the future.
– Example Practical skill — being able to cook a meal
– Example Human skill — understanding other people’s views
‘Anything is Possible’ when you put your mind to it
It is the start of a LifeLong journey of discovery for them with no limits on what they can achieve. It is not bound by school hours and can be completed in or out of school.
It is not in any way about testing, exams, homework, classwork and the National Curriculum it’s personal, skills for life and the future.
The Pillars of Possibility helps your child to measure their own personal development and helps them to set their own short and long term targets.
