Whole School Assemblies & Collective Worship
Ash Wednesday service
Father Tebin came to school to led our special Ash Wednesday service in school. All the children received ashes. The prayer leaders and other members of our school assisted with the special service with beautiful singing from the choir.
During this Lenten season we pray:
Father, Let us open our hearts to your love.
We are sorry for our selfishness.
Help us to think less about ourselves,
and more about others today and everyday.
We ask this through Christ Our Lord.
Blessing of the Nativity Scenes
On Thursday 19th December 2019, all the nativity scenes that had been beautifully constructed by our children were put on display in the Junior School hall. Father Joseph joined us in this wonderful celebration and led us in a collective worship blessing all the nativity scenes that were built. It was a reverent atmosphere in the hall with parents and children admiring the talents of our children.
Lighting the Advent Wreath
Dressing the Christmas Tree
Today, the Junior children dressed the Christmas tree with all the beautiful decorations the children had made. Each child worked hard making their decoration, and we had so much fun dressing the tree.
Then (with a little Christmas magic and some wishes) the tree was lit!
After this, Mrs Whelan and the prayer leaders, led the school in collective worship, lighting the first candle of Advent.
What a wonderful afternoon.
The Christmas Tree
From a tree a manger was made,
On the First Christmas in it He laid.
Also from a tree a cross was made
And on it, for our sins, the price He paid,
I remember each year, as the tree I adorn
His gift giving began, the day He was born.
And as I gently place, each ornament of gold,
In his hands I place my heart, and my life, for him to hold.
Trusting in Him, to take good care of me,
I pray and sing as I decorate the tree.
'I am the Way, the Truth and the Light' He said,
That's why I put lights, on my Christmas Tree.
