CHILDREN SHARE ADVENT WITH A TRUSTEE OF THE GOVERNING BODY

Mrs Cherry Edwards OBE, one of our school Governors, came in to school to tell us all about advent.

She told us all about advent and the reason why Christians celebrate it on the run up to Christmas.

Mr Woolerton and Dylan Collins lit the first advent candle, and Mrs Edwards lit the second one. Dylan Collins and Evey Pulford placed two decorations onto our Christmas tree symbolising 'hope' and 'peace'.

The children amazed Mrs Edwards with their beautiful singing at the end of the assembly. Mrs Edwards wished us all a very happy Christmas, and said that she was looking forward to her next assembly in the New Year.
