Father Steve and Father Max welcomed us to St Mary's Church to celebrate Advent. We also included a Eucharist in the worship, which meant that the children who had recently completed their First Communion could join us in taking the Bread and Wine. Our team of servers helped to lead the Worship. We lit the special Advent candle and learned about why this is such an important time of year for Christians. Many thanks to School Governor Mr Stringfellow, who joined us to play the organ.
We enjoyed a wonderful day of activities to celebrate the Hindu festival of Diwali. Each class enjoyed a dance workshop, children created Rangoli patterns using a variety of different media, we made Diya lamps and children had the opportunity to receive a Henna tattoo. The day ended with a whole school worship where we learned the story of Rama and Sita and why it is so important for Hindus. We also watched a dance as our best performers from each class came together to entertain us.
