Easter Church Service
Today, the whole school, along with all of our Mummies and Daddies, attended Church for an Easter Service with a twist. Our boys and girls in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 took their homemade Easter Bonnet’s along with them!
Father Kevin started our Worship by welcoming the families and explaining how busy he had been over the past few days preparing for this special time of year in the Christian calendar. He explained that it is Holy Week and it is a special time for Christians to remember what Jesus did for us.
Father Kevin also explained how grateful he was to all of the grown ups and children who had helped him make enough crosses made out of palm leaves to be distributed to all of the children in school, as well as the congregation who attend the church services throughout the week.
He thanked the children and staff for helping to decorate the church in time for Holy Week, with all of the children’s artwork that linked to Easter. The Lady Chapel is full of beautiful artwork that portrays the Easter Story.
The children began the Church Service singing ‘This is the Day!’. It was lovely to hear the grown ups joining in with the hymn.
Father Kevin explained that Christians remember Holy Week because Jesus died to set us free. He asked the children to consider and remember this important event when they are devouring their chocolate Easter Eggs on Easter Sunday.
We then had annual school event THE EASTER BONNET PARADE!
The children paraded one class at a time walking around the church to show everyone their amazing creations.
Have a look below and you will see just how creative our Reception and KS1 children have been!
