What a lovely way to end the week. We were fortunate to be able to enjoy a thought-provoking Candlemas Service at Church this afternoon as a school, with plenty of support from parents, grandparents, governors and friends of the school. It was fantastic to see the awe and wonder on the children’s faces when all the candles were lit in the darkened church – and their enjoyment when they were all blown out!
The children learnt that Candlemas is an important Christian celebration which takes place annually on February 2nd. It commemorates the Presentation of Jesus at the Temple when he was a baby and occurs 40 days after Christmas Day.
An enormous thank you to the team for all pulling together to support this event and especially to Revd Liz for leading it.
