LENT

During this season of Lent let us try to make sure we do all we can be the very best version of ourselves that we can be!

What can we do to improve ourselves?

What positive difference can we make?

How can we show we are thinking of others?

Our Year 5 children led us all - children, staff, families and parishioners, in a reflection on the Last Supper as part of our Lenten journey. It was very moving. The hall started in darkness and then light introduced as the disciples came to support Jesus. As the disciples then spoke about their fears and lack of understanding of Jesus' words to them and their own lack of strength to stand firm when the soldiers came, each light was extinguished until we were in darkness once more. 

Many of our Year 3 children received the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time, along with their peers from across the Halifax Deanery, at a special service on Saturday 9th March. 

                   It was wonderful to share this special time with them            and their families.

We LOVE reading!

This year for World Book Day all our children decorated a potato as a beloved book character! Who can you recognize from some of their wonderful creations?

WHOLE SCHOOL WORSHIP FOCUS

           We listen to many Bible stories from the Old and the New   

                     Testament that focus on many of the virtues.

                                   So far we have reflected on      

                         FAITH, HOPE, CHARITY, COMPASSION

                                            and GRATITUDE.                                        

We are reflecting on the importance of all these virtues, how they affect our lives and how we can make the virtues part of who we are. 

Can you tell which Bible stories we have used to help us reflect on and understand the virtues and get to know God better?
