I wasn't referring to Good News Bible though, we use that in my Christian school. There is a catholic bible that has extra in the old testament. My friend had one, mind you that's the only time I've ever seen it!
You are right too on what the kids would do at school as my friend worked in a catholic school and that's what they did I just didn't know the names of it.
I work in a Christian school, we do once a week assembly, singing and a Bible story etc. it's very different to the catholic school down the road.
