He said hundreds of other students and their families were evacuated from the vicinity of the 24-story building because of the possibility that it might collapse and scatter debris over a half-mile radius.All students of St Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary School, which is close to the tower, have been relocated to Sion Manning Catholic Girls School, which is outside of the zone cordoned off by police.“I think from an educational point of view, it is really important you get back to some form of consistency and normality as much as you can in a period of incredible anguish and tragedy,” said Morrison.He said that teachers tried extremely hard to provide students with a normal day in class, and schools across the archdiocese helped by delivering books and other materials needed at short notice.Morrison said he was “very proud” of the response to the tragedy of the Catholic Church “at every level.”“It was good to see all elements of the church’s mission come together to address what is an incredibly said but also an incredibly complex situation,” he added.St Francis of Assisi Church in Notting Hill was one of two churches to serve as a collection point for members of the public who wished to contribute clothing, food and other supplies for families dislocated by the fire.Fr Gerard Skinner, the parish priest, was so inundated with donations that within hours there was no storage space remaining.He left a message on his telephone to tell well-wishers that the church was “at capacity.” He said he was also overwhelmed by offers of practical assistance.The fire in Grenfell Tower in North Kensington, in the west of the capital, is believed to have started in the early hours of the morning.It spread rapidly because it ignited the flammable cladding that encased the tower block, and many trapped tenants jumped from the building to escape the flames and smoke.About 80 people are being treated in hospital and about 17 of them are described as being in “critical” condition.
