Christ The King Catholic Primary School

“God’s Kingdom we will build, for our lives to be fulfilled”


April 24

Welcome back after the Easter holidays! (15.4.23)

Extra action: Zoom Encounter with the Higaonon Indigenous Community (16.4.24)

Sienna and Wilson had the rare opportunity and privilege today to meet members of the Higaonon indigenous community, in the Philippines. The chief of the tribe took part in this encounter as we learnt about our partners in the Columban Fathers tree planting initiative.

The tribe answered many questions put to them by children from fellow catholic schools in Birmingham. They explained how climate change and the weather is effecting their lives as well as how their tribal system works.

The replanting by the Higaonon tribe will help provide for local pharmacies and supermarkets. All the trees are native so will not alter their local eco system, already they have seen a variety of wildlife returning to the replanted areas.

We look forward to more updates as we continue our partnership with this community.

Sienna and Wilson will talk to the school community about all the information they heard during the encounter.

Did you know?

The flag of the Philippines changes colour order depending on if the country is at war or living in peace? Red for courage goes to the top at times of war.


AtoZ of Prayer: M is for Malawi (18.4.24)


We recapped the last A to Z of prayer assembly with the whole school, previously shared before the holiday. 

Extra Action: Local Sustainability (23.4.24)


The Friends of Conker Island (the green area directly outside of our school), including two of their youngest members and pupils of our school, planted trees. They planted: 10 ivy trees, 3 honeysuckle trees, four rose trees, 23 hazel trees and 17 rowan trees. Thanks for the Friends of Conker Island who are in contact with the Birmingham City Council to discuss their mowing schedule to help safeguard our trees and negotiate a reduced and more pollinator friendly mowing schedule. Once mature, these plants will not only provide food and shelter for pollinators, birds, and a host of other invertebrates, but also help to shield those using the island from harmful vehicle particulates in the air. They are really looking forward to planting more next season!

A thank you! (24.4.24)


We would like to thank you for taking part in this year’s Good Shepherd Appeal during Lent and we are grateful for your generous contributions to our Mission in the Archdiocese as we reach out to support those in need.
