School auction, special gift, exam invigilators needed

Latest schools news from across the Diocese of East Anglia includes new stained glass windows, an auction of school goods and an advert for exam invigilators.

A new set of stained glass windows (pictured above) have been installed at the main entrance to St Alban’s Catholic High School in Ipswich thanks to a student’s generous parent.

Pasquale Iachetta, owner of FIS Windows, kindly donated a set of three stained glass windows and fitted these above the doors to the main entrance.

Lay Chaplain, Katherine Edwards, said: “The imagery was designed by students in RE and the ideas then chosen for the final designs. We are very grateful to our Art department and teachers who spent a great deal of time coordinating the designs. Special thanks to Mr Iachetta, Mrs Hind, Mrs Wright, Mrs O’Donoghue and Mrs Gilson.

Sacred Heart School in Swaffham is auctioning off goods due to the closure of the senior school. Included will be vintage school furniture, sports and PE equipment, catering equipment, examination tables, general school goods, toys, games, books, ICT equipment and cabling.
