About Me...

Meeting the Queen

On Wednesday 22nd June the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Liverpool.  A group of our children had a wonderful time when they went along to cheer, wave flags and welcome them to our city.  One of our year 3 pupils was very lucky to be chosen to present Her Majesty with a bouquet of flowers.

90th Birthday Celebrations

It was an exciting time for our school when the Queen celebrated her 90th birthday as it was also the 90th birthday of our very own Canon Todd and Monksdown School itself!

We had fun all week finding out about such things as food, school, toys, music and fashion over the past 90 years.  On one day we all dressed in red, white and blue and everyone enjoyed a celebratory “street party” together.

Out of The Darkness

Out of the Darkness is a tribute to the victims of the Liverpool Blitz told through one of the city’s most iconic buildings, St Luke’s Church from 6th – 8th May 2016.The children in 4S and the Arts Award after-school club have made lanterns that will be displayed as part of this event.

To mark the 75th anniversary of the May Blitz, St Luke’s Church – known affectionately as‘The Bombed out Church’ – will be transformed by a FREE moving light and sound display.

The story of St Luke’s will be told between 9pm and 10pm each evening as the former church is illuminated with lights and stunning visuals as projections are beamed on screens placed in the windows. The display will be accompanied with a moving soundscape featuring a ten minute film rolling throughout the hour.

From 8pm each evening – prior to the show – thousands of stained-glass lanterns will light up the garden, signifying the lives that were lost in one of the country’s worst bombing periods of the Second World War.

St Luke’s Church was hit on May 6th, 1941 leaving just a burnt out shell which has since stood as a memorial to the thousands of people who lost their lives during the Liverpool Blitz.
