On Thursday the four Catholic Primary Schools; St. Mary’s Haddington, St. Martin’s Tranent, St. Gabriel’s Prestonpans and Our Lady of Loretto Musselburgh, came together to celebrate Catholic Education with a Mass in Our Lady of Loretto and St. Michael’s Parish Church in Musselburgh. Children from each of the schools participated in the Liturgy and there was a fabulous turn out of staff, parents and parishioners at the mass showing the three pillars of Catholic Education: Home, School and Parish.
A big thank you to all the children, parents and staff who supported this important event.
Nex week in school we are celebrating Catholic Education Week. The theme this year is: Proclaiming The Gospel Of Joy. Each class has made a poster that takes up this them. Here are the posters which will be on display in St. Gabriel’s Parish Church during Catholic Education Week.

The boys and girls have sampled some chocolate already and they’ve given it the thumbs up!!

At the end of the last academic year the children of Primary 6 (now Primary 7) wrote to Archbishop Cushley and invited him to come to the school to celebrate Mass and visit them in their class. They did this as part of their Pope Francis Faith Award.
On Friday 29th August 2014, Archbishop Cushley visited St. Gabriel’s to say Mass for the whole community and to visit the children of Primary 7. It was a wonderful occasion enjoyed by all the pupils, staff, invited guests and members of the local Parish Community.
The Staff, pupils and community; particularly the children of Primary 7, are deeply grateful to Archbishop Cushley for giving up his time to visit us at St. Gabriel’s. During his visit the Archbishop was presented with a cheque for £100 to be donated to his personal charity.
